April 1 and 2, 2016 7:30 PM Meredith Rainey and Tania Isaac perform (In)Visible at The Annenberg Center

Choreographers Meredith Rainey and Tania Isaac will premiere a new collaborative work (In)Visible at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on April 1st & 2nd 2016 in the Harold Prince Theater. The evening-length duet, through a mix of playful satire and flowing movement, comment on individual and collective ideas of identity as it pertains to culture, sexuality and race -taking inspiration from Rainey’s and Isaac’s arc of artistic experiences. The evening is a part of the Annenberg Center Live African Roots, American Voices series, a multi-year journey that celebrates the African diaspora’s unique contributions to American culture.

The process began with Isaac as a facilitator, initially using the framework of her ‘open notebook’ process as a way to work with Rainey on creating an inquiry based trajectory for his choreography. This was designed to document conversations, impulses, and choices behind creating the work. Despite their esthetic differences –his background being classical ballet and hers being contemporary modern and various afro-influenced forms- what began as a solo project for Rainey has evolved into a duet choreographed and performed both that reflects the parallels in their experiences and creatively document their conversations.
(In)Visible runs at 7:30 PM on Friday April 1st and Saturday April 2nd.
