(Description from Dance This 2007 Program)
CU TURE premiered in PNB’s Choreographer’s Showcase in June and is a fashion archetype dance, driven by heavy rhythm and blues beat. A hard- edged, pop culture movement, referred to as “Voguing”, was created originally at the Rikers Island jail and made its way into the gay club scene in New York City. CU TURE takes voguing as a jumping off place and highlights the elements of fashion, society and isolation seen in life.
