Through enchanting humor and comforting authenticity, Frame Dance explores real stories, feelings, and battles of social anxiety in their latest creation Oh, I have to wash my hair, an evening-length performance for ten women on January 24 at the MATCH. This new work is a collaboration with singer/songwriter Alli Villines, cellist Patrick Moore, and designer Ashley Horn. An ode to those with a fear of judgement and making eye contact, Frame Dance invites you to come and enjoy just as you are.
Oh, I have to wash my hair features new music by Frame Dance composers including a surprising and engulfing electronic piece by Jake Sandridge (Houston), a highly restrained and delicately suspenseful piano piece by Paul Kerekes (New York), and a heavenly and shadowy piece for cello and playback by Hannah Selin (New York). Alli Villines, Houston’s own “ukulalli” is crafting and performing music with Patrick Moore. The composers will be present for the performance.
In its endeavor to expose the creative process to their audiences, Frame Dance will be offering tickets to the dress rehearsal on January 23 in addition to the performance on January 24. This is a great time to bring children and get behind the scenes.
