Abstract:

Abstract: Thesis of Blood, a one-act, dance-theater meta-commentary, brings conceptual, compositional, and narrative elements from the cinematic horror genre, specifically the classical and post-modern periods of the slasher film sub-genre, to the concert dance stage. The work explores how those elements can generate original choreographic material, translate into live theater through reimplementation via staging and stagecraft, and challenge standardized concert audience expectations. Thesis of Blood examines and combines the different forms of spectacle used in musical theater jazz and cinematic horror, their use of the eroticized female form, and how their different approaches and depictions of violence can reframe and question how and why the contemporary audience consumes violence as a form of entertainment.
