About the Event
Part performance art play, part dance production, and part dinner party, Open Invitation is a farcical riot of an evening. Created and directed by multidisciplinary choreographer Amanda Krische (2012 Dance & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts), and featuring live music and a cast of dynamic performers, you are invited to participate in a night of play, care, movement theater, and questions about who you are and where you come from. Through a revolving door of short stories told through movement, Open Invitation constructs a surrealist dream space where we might all enjoy the contradictions of being alive.Amanda Krische is an interdisciplinary movement artist, writer, educator, and herbalist creating socially-engaged work at the intersection of gender studies, mythopoetics, neuroscience, and ecology. Through the prism of dance and multidisciplinary performance, she creates transformative ritual experiences that tell spectacular stories of the everyday while imagining new possibilities of community healing.Known for insightful performance that renegotiates the audience/performer relationship,
