Emily Cargill and Dancers’ newest evening-length work, quiet beings, will make its world premiere on January 19-20, 2018 at Emory University’s Performing Arts Studio.
Drawing from her experiences of her recent plunge into motherhood, Emily Cargill's work will shine an honest light onto the bizarre, hilarious, excruciating, terrifying, beautiful, inevitable process of saying good-bye to a former self and hello to a new one. quiet beings will dissect the emotional and physical quest of self, as one teeters on the edge of old and new, past and present, memories and dreams. What exists in that middle space, the shadow land, of a person who is so familiar, yet we barely recognize, and the someone else who feels like a stranger crowding us in our new skin?
On a barren stage, the ensemble of 8 women surge and float between worlds, while offering the audience a look at the breathtaking process of redefining one’s self.
