UNDER(COVER)EPISODES

 

"Rare is the opportunity to see these dancers and this choreographer’s work from an arm’s length away, and her ability to work in intimate spaces might be Robyn Mineko Williams’ best kept secret." - Art intercepts

 

EPISODES

 

Spearheaded by Chicago-based, Princess Grace Foundation-USA award winning choreographer, Robyn Mineko Williams, UNDER(cover) is an innovative, chameleon-like performance blending together dance, a live original soundtrack and a perspective-enhancing palette of lightscapes. Williams brings together a creatively diverse team of artists including her previous collaborators from recent works for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago: composer-musicians Robert F. Haynes and Tony Lazzara of Chicago band Verger, and Brooklyn-based lighting designer Burke Brown. Minneapolis graphic designer and art director JT Williams contributes rich visual environments and “experience direction” to the piece.

Set in an intimate, somewhat immersive environment, UNDER(cover) is uniquely built to offer its audiences choices of perspective - different options in which to view the performance’s action, engaging them in a less conventional, more visceral theatre experience. The concept for the new work is in part inspired by varying scales of extroversion vs. introversion. “I’ve long been curious about our various instinctual levels of comfort in showing and communicating thought, emotion, and ideas to others in both familiar and unfamiliar settings. I often question my own comfort levels in this way, both professionally and personally, and how I tend to relate and respond,” Williams explains. “I’m fascinated to observe others' experiences and choices and to consider the multitude of layers in which we have to play with in the act of revealing ourselves.”
