Malinda LaVelle's Project Thrust presents Cover Girl
Malinda LaVelle's Project Thrust is excited to present Cover Girl, the companys fifth evening-length dance-theater performance. Cover Girl is a one-woman solo show choreographed and directed by Malinda LaVelle and performed by founding member and dancer Emmaly Wiederholt. The piece dissects declarations of fraud, dreams of gratification, and the facades people often put on for themselves and for others.
"This is me." Each of the four vignettes comprising Cover Girl starts with this simple declaration. However, identity is anything but clear as the protagonist becomes more and more fantastical in her assertions, dress and demeanor. The result is an uproarious ride through the trials of personal defeat and the many ways to retell ones own narrative.
In March 2016, artistic director Malinda LaVelle and dancer Emmaly Wiederholt created Cover Girl together during a weeklong artist residency at The Peñasco Theater in Peñasco, NM. The piece is based on material collected from a long distance collaboration with the following dancers: Angela Mazziotta, Carson Stein, Emily Jones, Eric Garcia, Joy Prendergast, Julia Hollas, Kelvin Vu, Madelyn Biven, and Maggie Stack.
Cover Girl runs 75 minutes with no intermission. Tickets are $15, cash or check only at the door. Suitable for ages 12 and up!
"Cover Girl is ultimately a coming-of-age story about every artist's identity within a wage-slave economy...Wiederholt is a lithe and focused dancer and excellent comic actor, breathing immense life into this physically challenging piece of minimalist theater." -Review by Jon Carver, Cover Girl, THE Magazine Santa Fe
