New Shoes: Joan Holly Padeo, Carissa Songhorian, Livya Howard-Yashar in New Shoes Dances 17

Experimental dance at Highways Performance Space


April 1, 2018

New Shoes: Joan Holly Padeo dances with Carissa Songhorian in a rehearsal for New Shoes Dances 17, at Highways Performance Space. Joan Holly Padeo's "HELMET | GOLIATH" (created in collaboration with Carissa Songhorian) exists where right and wrong reside within a spectrum with no definitive edges.

Two women fuse, destroy, and rebuild classical lines with an experimental and contemporary approach. The duet canvasses an exploration of temptation versus conscience into an uninhibited theatrical experience.

This piece is apart of NEW SHOES, which is an ongoing series (begun in 2013) of new movement-based works by emerging choreographers, directors and ensembles. This is the 17th edition of the series.

Performances March 31 and April 1, 2018. Tickets are $25 and are available online.
