THROB is a conceptual yet very physical work by Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects inspired by the biological workings of the heart. Informed by conversations with cardiologist Dr. Holly Andersen, Oberfelder tackles and represents the science of — as well as the stories spawned by — our most fundamental organ. Original music by composer Andy Akiho will be played live, augmented with auditory tracking of the heart rates produced by sweaty, passionate dancers. (Sound design by Weston Minissali). Oberfelder intrudes upon the intimate physicality of the dancers by examining their heart fluctuations produced by physical exertions and emotional confluence.
Also in the program is Re: Dress, a solo performed by Jody Oberfelder, and the premiere of Sung Heroes, a quartet which places each dancer in a cinematic lens, working through his or her own — and others’ — emotional narratives to connect to the superhero within. Music is by The Section Quartet. Collaborators for the evening include lighting designer Kathy Kaufmann, costumes by Katrin Schnabl, and dancers Lonnie Poupard, ChristinaNoel Reaves, Jake Szczypek, and Jessica Weiss.
