Joanna Rosenthal Read
Same Planet’s Stripped is a dance that explores how technology can affect the lived (social) experience. Stripped creates environments that vacillate between past, present, and future, and reminds us of what is at stake when the pervasive use of technological objects replaces human connection. The absence of technology within the work illuminates its ubiquitous presence in our everyday lives.
“Thick and cushy movement vocabulary, beautifully composed structures, and keen direction give her latest work Stripped its glossy shine, but unlike other companies built on athleticism and Dance (capitol D), Rosenthal Read is ever-intentional about her choreographic choices.”
