Kyoko Dansu – Girl on Girl
Girl on Girl
Choreography Kyoko Ruch
Music Robin Rimbaud – Scanner
Premiere 18 March 2017 Dance Place, Washington DC, USA
“Girl on Girl” demonstrates the unnecessary obstacles that women face from birth by being placed into a patriarchal society. Objectification and role-performing become the expectation. In consequence, to maintain significance and identity, women claim authority by minimizing other women.
“Girl on Girl” was created through Dance Metro DC’s 2016-2017 Choreographers’ Commission Program. Kyoko Ruch was selected by Dance Metro DC for the 2016-2017 program year, which was made possible with generous support from Lumberyard (formerly American Dance Institute).
