WOMEN IN WAITING
Adapted and Directed by Emma Humphris

Women in Waiting

Women in Waiting is a short performance about women’s experience in immigration detention centers in the United Kingdom. The main character, Samia, is a young and pregnant Syrian woman who struggles to get support and medical attention. She finds little relief in her peers and the various agents in the detention center. This play is a combination of research and documentary work on immigration detention centers in the UK by Professor Von Zinnenburg Carroll and the play Q&Q by Liwaa Yazji. Assistant Directed by Anqi Yu. Cast: Mia Primeau, Thay Graciano, Oumnia Chellah. 

 

This play deals with sensitive and violent content about women in detention and highlights issues around motherhood and pregnancy. For questions email tapsinformation@stanford.edu

BONE BRAIN
Choreographed by Sariel Golomb

Bone Brain

An experimental dance work for four, Bone Brain explores cracked earth environments, the uncanny, tumbleweeds and inflatable tube men, animation and de-animation, toxicity, rurality and stasis, and zones of liminality and simultaneity between life and death. Choreographed in collaboration with Linden Hill, Colette Kelly, and Minha Kim, featuring live sound design by Jaehoon Choi and sculpture by Shirin Towfiq.

WEEKEND 2

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 06 to SATURDAY FEBRUARY 08 at 8PM in NITERY STUDIO

SOLI
Choreographed by Anna Kimmel

Soli

SOLI is a dance created in collaboration with Kenneth Reams—an artist, activist, and inmate on death row. This piece oscillates between themes of solitude and solidarity to offer space for reflection regarding the injustices of the American criminal justice system and the continued practice of capital punishment. Centered around Reams’ inability to be in attendance for this labor of mutual respect, admiration, and ideas, this dance explores the limits of presence for the absent body, and the vulnerability of invisibility.
