I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra
"I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra" explores compositions that are funny, sincere, strange, and fleshy. The work represents, respects, and rejects female archetypes. It distorts and experiments with rituals and pop culture. There is deep darkness and bright, shimmering light.
Choreographed and performed by Sada Naegelin and Leah Wilmoth. Additional dancers Alanna Marguritte and Fern Wiley, with pianist Charlie Copeland.
Sada Naegelin is originally from Santa Fe, NM and has performed in Portland since 2008 with the likes of Lu Yim, Taylor Eggan, and Jin Camou. This is Sada's second collaboration with Leah Wilmoth nearly seven years after their work with Taylor Eggan on Tinnitus (2010). After Tinnitus, Sada spent a short stint in Austin, TX, where she danced with Ellen Bartel and other local choreographers. Most recently Sada created and performed the duet TRACES with local Portland dancer, Mark Koenigsberg.
