Choreographed and performed by GROUND SERIES co-directors Sarah Ashkin and Brittany Delany.
Addressing the complexities, histories, and symbologies that exist within our own dancing bodies, task is a practice of reflecting on the problematics of the white female body moving through the foreground and background. Balancing the absurdity, tenderness, violence, and honesty required to engage with racism, gender, and western concert dance, task is a collage of postmodern dance, performance art, satire, and political commentary.
