LAWRENCE GOLDHUBER | ERICK MONTES
FRIDAY, JUNE 22 | 8PM
Performed by Gus Solomons, Jr. and Alexandra Montalbano, Lawrence Golhuber's "Apple v. Orange (Part 1)" asks "What has happened to us? There are no more resolutions to our conflicts...Age v Beauty? Rep. v Dem.? Find it in 'Apple v Orange'!
“OTHERWISE” was born out of Erick's personal urgency to find truth in his own body, and how this truthfulness could be translated with integrity and authenticity to other bodies. The work shaped its own structure with the creation of space within the space with intrinsic paths, traffic patterns and sudden tabloids, that throughout a meditative routine feed a larger canvas which resembles our human interactions on a daily basis. The choreography taps into socio-cultural topics by coincidences with subtle humorous commentaries and sparks of parody in defiance against normativity and uniformity in these times of crisis and uncertainty.
