Racoco/Rx and Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance present "Wood & Silk: A Shared Evening of Textural Choreography."

Rachel Cohen and Jody Sperling are two innovative choreographers whose works create dynamic sculptural forms by extending the body in space. Sperling uses lightweight silk costuming and Cohen is currently exploring wood and sandpaper. In "Wood & Silk" the two present their contrasting, yet complementary, approaches side by side, in an evening of visually arresting dance.

Racoco/Rx will reprise Part I of TILT, "I would." TILT fractures Cervantes' Don Quixote and romantic tales of chivalry to explore the concept of delusion through movement and carpentry. "I would" dissects the moment Don Quixote begins to believe he is a knight errant: five performers armored in sandpaper build, dismantle, and reconfigure wooden objects that alternately support and impede them, physically manifesting the emotional and psychological structures we build, tear down, and re-create around ourselves.

With music by Lynn Wright, costumes by Olek, lighting by David Ferri, and set by performers Carolina Antunes, Rachel Cohen, Alisa Fendley, Remi Harris, and Masumi Kishimoto, with special guest Paul Watson on trumpet.

"I would" was commissioned by Women in Motion. It was created in part through The Field's Artist Residency program, supported by the Tides Foundation, and residencies at CAVE and Maryland Institute College of Art. Thank you to to Materials for the Arts, the Depts. of Cultural Affairs, Sanitation, and Education. "I would" is made possible, in part, by The Field's 2012-13 Field Dance Fund, supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
