About This Event
Who are you? What motivates your actions? What happens when you meet someone new? From primordial instinct to nuanced near-lifelong friendship, join ChoreoNova in walking through the psyche to rest peacefully in the arms of emotional intimacy. Featuring the world premiere of new work "The Freudian Psyche" -- an abstract, graphic, experimental dance narrative of the mind's model development from birth to adulthood. The human mind's instinctual, hotheaded Id battles for behavioral control with the logical, reality-based Ego and the judgmental, righteous Superego. They interactively develop specific coping styles and defense mechanisms to shape individual behavior. Through dance, the Id, Ego, and Superego war from infancy into adulthood without a victor. Each force wins and loses at different times. With maturation, they become more complex and finally learn to coexist adaptively by adulthood. Psychosocial has something for everyone. It mixes live performance and dance film, with each piece a unique tale using its own diverse dance style.
