SuperGroup is raising money for Springboard for the Arts.
SUPERGROUP IS TURNING 10!
We are heading into our 10th year, and as most 9 years olds do, we've been taking some time to reflect on the where we've been and look forward to where we are going. In 2017 we premiered our eighth full length show at two inaugural festivals in Minneapolis: Candy Box and LALA Fest. We were also super humbled to be chosen for one of three McKnight Fellowships in Choreography. This fall we've taken a step back from performance making to reassess where we are at. Turns out a lot can change in 10 years, and our lives look a little different than when we first applied for Red Eye's Works-in-Progress program in 2007. We've been having conversations about who we are now as artists, both individually and together, what we want to make, and equally important, how we want to make it.
With that said, we are in the nascent stages of developing a new project. We are taking our time with this one, letting it come into its own slowly and it a way that feels at once realistic and exciting. We are thinking and talking about meetings, fractured narratives/alternate facts, attractor states, Mary Overlie's Unnecessary practice, feminist learning structures, language primacy vs movement primacy, and sharing contemplative space together as a mode of engagement. We don't know what, if anything, these inspirations will add up to, and for now that's right where we want to be.
You financial donation is so appreciated and will go toward laying the ground work for SuperGroup's second decade. As always always always, we love that you come experience our work, and more importantly, that you champion and support an ecosystem of live contemporary performance that deepens our connection to our bodies and to one another, challenges our thinking, and brings us together in real time and space.
Sam, Erin, and Jeff
