"a definitive tour de force" - Critical Dance
Double Exposure offers a snapshot of the current American contemporary dance landscape in a single evening‑length work. This project breaks all the rules of traditional creative roles, with 16 choreographers and two dancers. Performed in its entirety by RAWdance's Co-Artistic Directors, Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein, it comprises 13 duets created by some of the most intriguing and esteemed choreographers making work along the West Coast today.
Choreographers include Joe Goode (SF), Ann Carlson (LA), Shinichi and Dana Iova-Koga (Oakland), KT Nelson (SF), David Roussève (LA), Kate Wallich (Seattle), casebolt and smith (LA), Amy Seiwert (SF), Amy O'Neal (Seattle), Tahni Holt (Portland), Holly Johnston (Long Beach), and Monique Jenkinson/Fauxnique (SF), as well as RAWdance's Rein and Smith. Artists were added in stages, with the goal of representing the widely diverse backgrounds, cultures, points of view, and styles of moving that make up the field. Smith and Rein themselves serve as a through-line for the performance, with their nearly two-decade long history as dance partners forming the core upon which each choreographer serves up their own unique vision of a duet.
The premiere of Double Exposure was presented by ODC Theater in July 2016. Stay tuned for future chances to see the work live. For other RAWdance performances and tour information, visit rawdance.org.
