More About THRYN SAXON: SAXYN/DanceWorks

This piece is an evolution of a duet, BAB/E, that Thryn began in June of 2018. BAB/E was inspired by ideas of physical impact (body against body, body against itself, body against the floor) relationships, disruption of the feminine ideal, mosh pits, and punk rock music. An exploration of exposed nerves, consumption of sensation, “mud and glass,” it is in part a response to her experience of having certain extremes of physicality withheld by the nature of being a woman causing her to instead research and run after them. In this new iteration, women have space to experience those risks and sensations and indulge in their pure physicality while exploring the subtleties and nuances of the female. This residency is the next step in activating the vulnerability and force that began in the initial stages of the work. Thryn’s work is largely inspired by cinematic effect and timing. She would like to explore how this piece lives in film as well.
THRYN SAXON: SAXYN/DanceWorks is a dancer, filmmaker, choreographer, and teacher from Miami, FL whose work has been performed at venues across NYC. She has taught at the Cameron Dance Center in FL, DanceWave ASDI Summer Intensive, Connecticut College, Gibney Dance Center, and Peridance Capezio Center. As a dancer, she has performed with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, John Zullo, Julia Ehrstrand, Rosie DeAngelo, and currently dances with SpacesOfFontana, TYKE Dance, and Kate Weare Company. Her debut dance film, all of her, was an official selection for the 2018 LA Dance Shorts Film Festival, The MarDel Presents: Dance on Film Festival (nominated for Best Choreography), SPARK Dance Film Festival, and the ARTS TRIANGLE Dance Film Festival. Thryn was recently selected as one of eight resident choreographers to participate in the Mare Nostrum Elements: Emerging Choreographer Series in 2019.
