zoe | juniper: BeginAgain

“A swirl of duality and dueling identities... uncanny, luminous beauty.”  The New York Times

“Visual wizardry, brilliant dance” – Seattle Times

Presented as part of the Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

In a rich and immersive environment of striking projections and kaleidoscopic paper sculptures, this evocative duet is an intoxicating theatrical adventure juxtaposing Zoe Scofield’s supple-edged choreography with artist Juniper Shuey’s swirling and lush visuals. At once primal and sharply balletic, Scofield’s movement alters our perception of the lithe dancers, with a mix of animalistic otherworldliness and virtuosity. BeginAgain smartly investigates the multiplicity of self, memory and perspective through two parallel solos that weave in and out of each other, beautifully performed by Scofield and Ariel Freedman (Batsheva Dance Company, Kidd Pivot). The artists reveal an intrinsic truth about oneself and the aspects of humanity that unite us.


Workshop with Zoe Scofield on Saturday, March 28, 2:30pm-4:30pm

Grand Rehearsal Hall at the Colburn School, 200 S Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012

$15 [$20 at door]. Register here: https://www.artful.ly/store/events/5299

Utilizing somatic approaches to technique, Zoe Scofield’s classes are physically rigorous, deep, and kinesthetically challenging—a space where product-orientated results are released, and active experience reins. Inspired by a variety of contemporary dance styles, including gaga, ballet, spiraldynamik and yoga, set exercises are combined with structured improvisation. Scofield incorporates musicality, as well as visual and physical metaphors as a vehicle to surprise and further each dancer’s potential as physical and performing body. She explores the body’s inherent dynamic sensations made tangible and precise in order to foster a body that is available, aware and in command of its senses—intuitive and wise. Class is the space for beginning again with a full understanding of where we come from.

Presented in conjunction with performances of 'BeginAgain.
