Prompted by Jersey City Theater Center’s theme of “Disruption”, The Moving Architects present “Anthology” as an evening of women-centric dance works choreographed by Erin Carlisle Norton that look to eras of disruption and how individuals, relationships, and communities manage and overcome these challenging times.

Featured works include “The Groove”, a quartet that abruptly overturns and surges within a buzzing sound score in order to become a trusting yet aggressive community trying to connect. “The Jam” is a group dance work with a mod flair, exacting attitude, and 60’s surf and rock soundtrack, suggesting the extremes of a turbulent era side by side with a pop culture that promoted mirth and oblivion. “10” is a new solo choreographed and performed by Director Erin Carlisle Norton that utilizes a sound score of her own recorded voice to narrate and share experiences of running a dance company for ten years.  “Americana” looks to the iconic images and interpersonal struggles of the migrating American family during the Great Depression era and includes video collaboration with gwen charles.

The array of themes and artistic work in “Anthology” reveals the indefatigable feminine strength of The Moving Architects alongside compelling performances by Caitlin Bailey, Maggie Beutner, Jenny Gram, Léla Groom, and Ashley Peters, with projections by multi-disciplinary artist gwen charles, and precision-dependent choreography by Erin Carlisle Norton, in celebration of the company’s 10th Anniversary Season.
