wolfthicket is a dance theater spectacle. it is a place: the periphery, the woods, the schoolyard, the basement. it is games of make believe: hopscotch, hand-patting, tennis, music video, sunbathing. it is a world of the women(+) who feed it.
wolfthicket is a suite of games, dances, songs, and made-up folk ritual. an optimistic distopia. It is vaudeville, many small acts that mess around with each other and the audience. It invites the audience to applaud, cheer, or heckle.
These dancers were not grown on industrial farms. Well, some of the short busty ones fled the terrors of dance training industrial complex, others are lanky physical theater performers. All have become clowns. At least one is a certified doula. Our youngest can just only legally drink and our oldest is forty but NOT MARRIED. The choreography dares to take care of both the of dancers and the dancing.
