The One, The Other One, & The Many by Philadelphia-based choreographer Katherine Kiefer Stark examines the age-old story of a hero’s journey in a highly physical, cinematic style modern dance work.
The One, The Other One, & The Many explores leadership, heroism, and power in pop-culture, using cinematic structures and techniques to create quickly shifting perspectives. Drawing from research into heroic and emergent leader narrative films and personal experiences, the work presents a physical narrative of a hero’s journey with ten dancers whose roles vary from being members of a group to serving as invisible threads assisting the lead character.
Development of this work began in 2015 with support from the Philadelphia Cultural Fund. It is the first work of a trilogy.
