'Après moi, l’obscurité' (After me, the darkness) is a contemporary dance by Paige Phillips in collaboration with a cast of three female performers. The work examines a myriad of social and political injustices that women have been forced to endure. By collaging together aesthetic and contextual references from the Renaissance, mid-century, and today's pop-culture, the content lays witness to the longevity of such indignities. A wild ride of vignettes feature sexually anthropomorphized horses, contrived frivolity, and Francisco Goya’s depictions of witchcraft, amounting to a bold rejection for nostalgic ideals of purity and femininity.
