Two Twelve is the final installation of a three-year performance project by choreographer Jodie Randolph. World premiere performances are Friday and Saturday, May 3 & 4, at the Marlene Boll Theatre in Detroit.
The work questions the undeniable tensions in our world through the subject of interpersonal conflict. Innate opposition becomes the source of investigation, offering a deep reflection of the polarity within ourselves. Our complicated need for human connection is countered by the wars that ensue between nations, between people, and ultimately within. A contrast between the individual versus the collective, this work explores themes of dependence, individuality, and manipulation set in motion by a series of reactions that reach for a tipping point and question the boundary between self and other.
Performers include Sam Assemany, Claire Little, Christina Perry, Kaitlyn Pollock, and Megan Scheppelman. Two Twelve is choreographed and directed by Jodie Randolph in collaboration with the artists. Lighting design is by Seth Amadei.
Performances are Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4, from 8-9:30 p.m.
Tickets: are $25 at door ($20 if purchased in advance).
