Presented in partnership with The Fusebox Festival, Women & Their Work welcomes Amrita Hepi to Austin. Based in Australia, Hepi is an acclaimed dance artist whose work investigates the body’s relationship to personal histories and archive. Her new work, Rinse, explores the romance of beginnings and what happens next, when those initial thrills begin to fade and inertia takes over. This performance at the Rollins Theater at the Long Center will mark the US premiere of this work.
Hepi’s electric new performance recreates an entropic origin myth on stage, traveling from end to ending, weaving together autobiographical elements with the grand narratives of art, feminism, popular culture and colonial history. An intimate yet epic solo performance based on a dynamic improvisational score, Rinse expands Hepi’s fascination with hybridity under empire and contemporary dance’s fixation with the “neutral” body.
Additional funding support is provided by Australia Council and Performance Space Sydney.
