Meg Wolfe: trembler.SHIFTER

 

“Meg Wolfe’s relentless creative spirit knows no bounds.” —Flavorpill

World Premiere
The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

 

Los Angeles choreographer Meg Wolfe’s powerful full-evening work propels its dancers through unsustainable acts of balancing—with the joy, anger, angst, sweat and hell of bodies as its fulcrum. Alongside performers Gregory Barnett, Sarah Day, Darius Mannino and Taisha Paggett, Wolfe delves into the far reaches of opposing forces to create a choreographic language from the exchange of extremes: from chaos to control, pleasure to pain, tension to release. trembler.SHIFTER displays a powerful rejection of individual certainty to unearth the structural shifts that rule us, from the intimate pull of emotions to the vast pull of gravitational forces. Performed to an original score by composer Aaron Drake, the full-out dancing collides with a destabilized sonic environment of rhythmic surfaces, sampled slide guitar, trembling cymbals and pop/classical mashing as it pushes toward even greater volatility. Additional collaborators include lighting designer Chris Kuhl, set designer Lorrie P. Snyder and costume designer Marcus Kuiland-Nazario.
