Pronoun Emergencies

A celebration of the pronoun in song and movement.

Language lies at the heart of who we are. We live in language. We are “we” because of language. You are “you” and I am “I” because of language. Language creates concepts, relationships, separations and connections and it is what makes us human. Whether dialect, idiom, jargon, slang, it’s held together through the structures of grammar.

The project, Pronoun Emergencies, will be a 10 minute choreomusical song, addressing separation, connection and power through language, communal singing and dance. It will address this separation/connection through a text of pronouns. It will open with separation, danger, alarm, pass through a development and close with connection, unity, safety. The preliminary text, Pronoun Emergency, is written and was performed as a theater piece by six actor/dancers in 2015. To connect vocal sound, language and movement more deeply, the piece will become a work for a specialized group of singers and movers.
