Marksman adopts the metaphor of “aim” to examine how we form — and are formed — over time. Though collisions with others may shape us, Marksman acknowledges the beauty, and futility, of our own willfulness. An abstract work, Marksman zeros in on the magnetism and electricity between bodies always present in Weare’s work, revealing ancient signals about presence, power, attraction, hierarchy, and vulnerability.
Gain valuable insight into their artistic process as Choreographer Kate Weare and the company artists engage in a post-performance discussion of Marksman following the performance on Friday, October 6. Moderated by ODC Writer in Residence Marie Tollon, onstage immediately following the performance.
“…a baptism, an exorcism, a creature mothering its young and a wild beast being tamed...“Marksman” should prove one of the choreographer’s most significant works.”
