This year’s stage production The Cohort 2022 features work by:
Rae Charles (Local Artist & RS Company Member)
Kathleen Doherty (Visiting Artist – Halifax, NS Canada)
Erinn Liebhard (RS Artistic & Executive Director)
Laura Ann Smyth (Visiting Artist – Los Angeles, CA)
Charles’ new piece Learning to Understand uses the metaphor of falling in love to explore how we come to understand ourselves and one another, and visitor Kathleen Doherty is remounting her work BASSline, which takes inspiration from how prominent bass lines within music influence movement choices, rhythmic timing and shapes in the dancers’ bodies. Liebhard’s new work An Opening is a musing on the synergy of keeping it together and breaking apart, and visitor Laura Smyth is setting her work Character A/Musings, using the jazz idiom to consider the way in which we invent and reinvent ourselves throughout our lifetimes.
