Erika Mitsuhashi in The Saddest Girl at the Party at New Works at Night | Season Launch
New Works is launching 20th season by featuring three duets by six talented, emerging female dance artists: Zhara Shahab and Katie Lowen; Erika Mitsuhashi and Francesca Frewer; Jessica Wilke and Laura Avery. This evening of performances is curated by local and nationally renowned choreographer and artist Justine A. Chambers.
The Saddest Girl At The Party by Francesca Frewer and Erika Mitsuhashi – An ode to the attempt and a lament for that which is given up on. Movement crafted into games and absurd scenarios composes this duet, that lies somewhere between playful and heartbreaking; but falling (maybe, almost) just shy of each.
