The company will then showcase the world premiere of “Performance of Self” by Jodie Landau. Peabody Southwell directs the immersive piece which weaves chamber music, dance, song, and stories together to explore queerness, gender, sexuality, and dating among many other topics.

“We continuously construct and curate our lives, our relationships, and our selves,” said Landau in the official announcement, “ by choice or by circumstance. We weave the stories given to us, those we gather, and those we choose to retell to form a sense of identity. In identifying ourselves and each other we look to codify and define, and in such things we find both comfort and tribulations, as well as opportunity and limitations. Within all this, gender and sexuality are heavily weighted and fascinating topics, or at least have been for me, by choice and circumstance.”

Performance Dates: March 15-16, 2024
