ID, co-choreographed by Bautista and Browning, features 9 dancers from Louisville, Lexington, and Bowling Green, Kentucky. ID is an exploration of humans’ natural tendencies to find and establish identity.
This abstract dance will take the audience on a journey exploring the many facets of identity through seven vignettes. Individuals claim who they are by choosing groups and territories and they label one another through coarse judgements. A solo dancer will dispute and rebel against one’s suppressed identity and another will find conflict in her personal conscience. Groups will dispute their blind beliefs without truly knowing why they follow and the precious value of identity is raised when it is lost.
