Meredith Stapleton will perform two collaboratively choreographed duets with Harlee Trautman. “Geometry” is a stoic and sensitive spatial formula crafted specifically for the Iron Factory. It investigates misalignment through external shifts that manifest internal drama. “What did your father tell you?” is incredibly light hearted in comparison. With text pulled from the children’s story of Bambi, the duet follows one character thumping around in hiking boots and another struggling to walk in stilettos. Both pieces explore desires to connect through the very things that may disconnect, a dynamic prevalent in much of Meredith’s pursuit of beautiful awkwardness.
