Cliché and Bourgeoise

Choreographed and performed by Jamey Garner

Cliché and Bourgeoise is a solo developed from the idea of the words in the title. Combining elements drawn from a Western repertoire of ballet, modern and postmodern dance and spiced with impressions of voudou and spirit possession, the solo is created for marathon purposes. In the final version of the piece, the dance will repeat until the dancer cannot or will not continue. A form of performance art in the sense that the performer will test the limits of her physical abilities and mental focus to repeat the movements with an indefinite time limit.
