When do we decide enough is enough? How long can we live with the desire for change before taking that first harrowing step? Amidst growing racial and socio-political tensions in the United States, Staibdance creates an anachronistic world designed to illuminate the cyclical nature of human behavior. The costumes — mid-18th century undergarments — conjure images of French courts under Louis XIV’s reign and the political unrest that led to the storming of the Bastille. Set to a musical score ranging from Handel to the experimental electronic sounds of COH and Cosey Fanni Tutti, s n a p focuses a sharp lens on political and personal upheaval and investigates the often quiet, unnoticed moments before history is made.
