Shawn Womack: From Here

Shawn Womack (UCR Dance) Graduate Student

“From Here” presents three new solos by choreographer and performer Shawn Womack. The dances merge Womack’s interests in choreography, writing, and personal stories, with questions about memory, place and identity. From Here is a way of seeing a dance in relation to memory, to various histories, to place, to present circumstances, to shifting and shifty identities. It allows identity to burrow inside movement and text in order to wriggle, writhe, sneak or lunge forth into a prism of bodily images. From Here intentionally swirls in its references, rememberings, moves, tales, in its intended refusal of a linear progression.
