In Meg Wolfe’s new lushly physical movement work New Faithful Disco, belief is made manifest as energy. A trio of dancers—taisha paggett, Marbles Jumbo Radio, and Wolfe—feel it, generate it and remix it as they prepare to take on something big. Love, faith, impermanence? Pleasure? Power? Soul retrieval? A queer-love power-trio wrought with awkwardness and contradictions, New Faithful Disco builds communal energy into an accumulated whirlwind propelled by nature sounds and disco rhythms. Bodies are the conduit: the site of intersections where dances are generated, transferred, translated and recycled in an attempt to remix revolution. Disco opens up time, triggers fading histories and provides a backdrop that frames who we are, now. 

With original music by: Maria de los Angeles “Cuca” Esteves.
