Join TDPS Visiting Artists, Neta Weiner and Stav Marin for a performance of Cut. Loose on March 14 at 1:30pm in Jackson Dance Lab. This event is free and open to the public.

A physical and vocal duet exploring the violence and tenderness of a couple in the present moment and place. Cut. Loose is a performance that delves into the nuances of relationships and power dynamics across various domains, including gender, militarism, popular culture, and politics. The production explores different forms of communication, such as masculine and feminine language, body language, and speech language.

Cut. Loose occurs in three dimensions – words, movement, and sound. The critical element in this work is the knife, as an immediate means of communication, similar to word usage. A square arena is a ground for battles that are sometimes a joint practice, sometimes an act of intimacy, and sometimes a fight to the death. The audience experiences the rounds of matches at point-blank range as witnesses, critics, and reluctant partners.

The performers move between situations that force them to deal with worlds related to opposing forces of text and movement.
