Dance of the lowercase companies! Kate Watson-Wallacer and Jaamil Kosoko, dancer/choreographers who recently formed anonymous bodies, and Megan Bridge and Peter Price, who make up a team they call fidget, have paired up this weekend at Christ Church Neighborhood House. Both partnerships engage in dance theater, live music, on-site installation, multimedia, social justice and political themes, and audience involvement. In a trend that’s been growing, if diminutively, they titled their show "us."
Another trend that’s been around for a while has the performers on stage and going through their paces before the show begins. Watson-Wallace, in a red jumpsuit, and Kosoko, in crimson-sequined crinolines around his neck instead of his waist, wore tinselly wigs that made them look like July 4th sparklers. The program notes said they were attending a funeral for the United States. But though they looked solemn, danced with flags, and Watson-Wallace took a series of violent death drops, there was little to suggest a funeral.
