Good For Her Age
December 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
GOOD FOR HER AGE is a multi-disciplinary performance by the Seattle-based dance collective Four on the Floor. The work utilizes dance, live music, and video to explore the challenges, grief, and triumphs of four aging dancers as they transition into the realm of middle age.
Dressed in an ever-changing rotation of red costumes, the dancers will present a variety of solo and ensemble pieces. This work will examine what happens when the body, the instrument of a dancer, can no longer perform as it once did. It will also investigate sexuality, invisibility, and the quest for creative and societal relevance in a youth-focused culture. Although the subject matter embraces darker notions, it also employs humor and absurdity to draw the audience in and ask them to reflect on their own beliefs about ‘’women of a certain age.”
The piece is comprised of four dancers, Diana Cardiff, Karen Garrett de Luna, Sara Jinks, and Sarah Paul Ocampo. They will be accompanied by multi-instrumentalist, Ken Jarvey.
Four on the Floor was conceived in 2021 during the pandemic as a response to the limitations of the quarantine, choreographing and filming outdoor site-specific work around Seattle. The group is named after the 4/4-time signature in drumming, which is often associated with anthemic, fist-pumping music.
