Geared towards decensorship, and engaging the infinite potential of everyday objects, CUTLASS SPRING is at once, a manifesto, a heated reflection, an ethnography of sexual understanding and an archaeology of desire. In this solo, Dana Michel wonders how to locate her sexual identity within a multitude of complimentary and seemingly contradictory identities – as a performer, as a mother, as a daughter, as a lover, as a stranger? This choreographer/performer will map out a sexual education – with all of its embodiments, fabrications, and disassociations. She will follow these trajectories toward their softest core so as to discover what she holds back and what she makes explicit.
