Annacarla Valerian spent years studying first accounts of the inhumane imprisonment of the thousands - especially women - who were considered mentally ill for being too liberal and "morally abnormal" to function in society. During the fascist era, mugshots started appearing on the women's medical records. And in those years, more and more women were being admitted to the asylum for “deviancy". The work will feature dancers Kaori Akazawa, Nikki Holck, Yu-Chieh Kao, Elisabetta Minutoli, Kisara Nonaka, Meghann Ashley Padgett, Alessandra Ramnarine, and Meghann Ashley Padgett; and music by Antonio Vivaldi, Vincenzo Bellini, Domenico Scarlatti, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,Rita Botto, Faraualla and Fabrizio De Andrè. Beau Dobson’s "Wayward Locus" will investigate the neurological defense mechanisms we create in response to trauma, the healing process, and the stories that are made using combinations of forceful movement, reactionary improv, repetition and idiosyncratic nature. Chloe Markewich, Jessica Bendig, Gabrielle Johnson, and Beau Dobson will premier the work in December and are currently working with songs by Global Communication and John Dombroski as their tentative musical score.
