claire barrera: Grammar of the Imagination – Velocity Dance Center @ 12th Ave Arts (Seattle – Capitol Hill)
Grammar of the Imagination is an evening-length dance performance conceived and directed by claire barrera. It features an intergenerational cast of performers: youth Jordyn Kubernick, Nila Kwa and Paloma Barrera Rodriguez and adults Linda Austin, Allie Hankins, and Hannah Krafcik. The work uses traditional children’s games as a platform to explore how play can be a site of imagining radically new social relations, or of disciplining and re-enforcing social norms. This project will be a deep inquiry into the ways power, discipline, care, and transformation arise in interpersonal dynamics, which is a subject matter that has motivated barrera’s work for years.
