GIBNEY DANCE 2018
PREMIERe WORK from HEIDCO
Displace Engine centers itself around absences created by displacement and disassociation, Displace Engine utilizes choreographic methods of repetition, instant composition, and variations on kinetic and structural themes; the movement both deconstructs and indulges in sentimentality by romanticizing physical vocabulary over time.
There is libretto involved, instantly composed every performance by performers- creates distance between the dance and the audience. By employing an aesthetic of "sexualized metal,” costumes, design, and sonic environment propels the atmosphere of internality vs externality, inclusivity vs exclusivity, with sound design and composition by Zach Crumrine, music by artist SOFIA RETA, styled by Helena Grierson.

GOVERNORS ISLAND/NYC POETRY FESTIVAL
with Kristyn Arch, Kelsey Greenway, and Lir Katz
Soft & Stark (caitlinadams/heidco) is an ethereal atmosphere following the strength, interconnectivity, and poise held within a space shared by 3 female-identified bodies. Performed by Kristyn Arch, Kelsey Greenway, and Lir Katz, the dancers live amidst oppositional qualitative natures subsequently landing them in static images reminiscent of classical portraiture. The tension of this vacillation from familiarity and stillness to discomfort and disorientation is reenforced by the bucolic setting of Governors Island, which, like all stylized colonial utopias, encourages amnesia about its violent past.
