“Coloring” — New York Premiere
October 4, 2019 - October 5, 2019
Chuck Wilt’s UNA Productions, Rebecca Margolick, Jennifer Payán, Maximillion Canion, Kyle Filley, Dasol Kim, Courtney Mazeika, Alisya Razman Adam, Rose Nylons and Melanie Charles
Coloring is a 60-minute work for eight dancers, one drag queen/cellist, and one flautist/vocalist.
Inspired by themes of identity and unity, Coloring asks the question “What do we have in common?” and draws inspiration from personal narratives, interviews, and bodies of artwork from LGBTQ people.
Motivated by a sense of urgency to find commonality at this time in history, the work includes research on the lives and work of queer people and is intended to bring awareness to commonalities of humans, regardless of identity or background. COLORING is structured as episodic dances, which become more colorful in mood over time.
Discussion, after the Friday evening performance, with Jason Rosenberg, Program Manager of the Bronfman Center for Jewish life, and Chuck Wilt, choreographer of Coloring, that explores identity, queerness, and representation in the arts.
