in the Ether – detritus dance

Presented by The Dance Complex
The Dance Complex 536 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139 , Cambridge
$10 – $50

“In the Ether” is a multimedia contemporary dance duet exploring the limiting and empowering mythologies around womanhood in collaborators’ Claire Lane and Caroline Bradbury’s religious upbringings. The work draws heavily from Roman Catholic iconography of biblical women depicted in visual art to trace how organized spirituality has impacted the lives of women in history and in the dancers’ personal lives. The performance will be followed by a participatory artist talk-back.

detritus dance is a collective focused on feminist story-telling through contemporary dance, animation, collage, and text. Founded in 2021 by Massachusetts-based collaborators Claire Lane and Caroline Bradbury, detritus dance has presented work throughout venues in Boston including the Center for the Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA, Jamaica Plains Porchfest, and The Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA.
