reprise

about

REPRISE is the latest dance performance premiere by the Pioneer Winter Collective. REPRISE uses contemporary dance and physical theater to explore memory, marginalization, and queerness - how our lives intersect. The Miami Herald said this about the Collective's last premiere: "Pioneer Winter’s work, what he supports, what he thinks about and the ideas he voices, speak to and for people [...] it was provocative in just the way you want performance to be provocative, making you think about something you hadn’t or feel for someone you hadn’t identified with before; startling, exposed, unnerving, unexpectedly loving."

How loud does someone need to shout in order to be heard? They shout with their feet, hands, vocal chords, trying to be noticed by each other.
