This is the Girl questions representation, narrative, and conventional depictions of women in myth and in dance performance. This is the Girl features Christy Funsch and Nol Simonse in a series of duets wherein conversations and experiments take on these topics. Interspersed between the recurring duets are movement sections for five dancers, highlighting and also abstracting the tension introduced in each proceeding duet. Members of the Grrrl Brigade accompany on Taiko drums, with Dory Ellis on electric guitar and a chorus of singers—all covering songs from female punk/activist PJ Harvey. This is the Girl asks where identities of “girl” are lodged within each of us as it confronts the conventions of power that potentially hold us back.
