On January 19-20, 2018, Emily Cargill and Dancers will premiere, quiet beings, an evening-length piece featuring the work of Artistic Director, Emily Cargill. This performance will be held 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?
