Pat Graney: Girl Gods

Pat Graney: Girl Gods

“Powerful contemporary dance . . . Graney [has a] penchant for exploring the inner worlds of women.” – The New York Times 

“By turns meditative, ironic and explosive.” – The Seattle Times

Presented as part of the Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

++2016 Bessie Award Winner for Outstanding Production and Outstanding Visual Design!++


Pat graney is a winner of John Simon Guggenheim Fellowhip, Alpert Award, (2009), US Artists Award (2011), Doris Duke Award (2013).

The fierce women of Girl Gods may be wearing cocktail dresses and little heels, but their explosive physical language and wry humor reveal the anger simmering under the surface of the collective feminine mind. In Girl Gods, Graney explores the ancestry of women and deeply embedded layers of molten rage and repressed passions. With a physical language expressing undomesticated and long-buried feelings, the dancers of Girl Gods fiercely reveal the emotional underbelly of the female experience. Girl Gods is the latest spectacle from Alpert Award-winning choreographer Pat Graney, who has been making and touring work focused on women and the feminine psyche for thirty years.

Contains some brief nudity.
