Slavic Goddesses- A Wreath of Ceremonies

The Kitchen

January 26- 28 at 8pm

LMnO3 (Deborah Lohse, Cori Marquis and Donnell Oakley) embarks on an evening of shape-shifting through ideas of what it means to be female today when old ideals still hold strong images in our collective conscious. These women who are child-free by choice tackle expectations, identity and the multiple roles that are predestined for us. Through imagined games influenced by the competitive nature of the Olympics and the physical labor required in the role of motherhood, mundane everyday tasks are exaggerated and glorified as extreme sports and activities of high risk. Throughout these games, interactions, and interruptions, LMnO3 encourages the audience to engage with the multitude of ways in which we identify as women by challenging notions of femininity and celebrating alternative ways of channeling the instinct to nurture. The work digs into the personas we don, the functions they serve, and how we embrace our messy, imperfect, awkward, and uncomfortable selves. 

Having often addressed questions of feminism and cultural convention, Paulina Olowska here revisits the work of Zofia Stryjeńska—exploring the visionary Polish artist’s notion of ballet as a “wreath of ceremonies,” and designing costumes after her 1918 painting series Bożki słowiańskie (Slavic Deities) that was based on Slavic folklore and mythology. Katy Pyle, Artistic Director of the Ballez, will be working with Jules Skloot, Lindsay Reuter, Mei Yamanaka, Deborah Lohse, Madison Krekel, and Charles Gowin to personify Stryjeńska’s goddesses in solos that reactivate classic folk steps. An original score by Sergei Tcherepnin will mix cosmic sounds together with traditional Mazurkas, Polkas, and Oberkas, as well as spiritual disco. Lighting design by Madeline Best with inspirational quotes of Zofia Stryjeńska and Paulina Olowska.
