Works

Works by Choreographer Kristen Mangione are visceral and intelligent with an emotional depth 
 

Drawing from and often collaborating with visual artists, opera, the media, and theater, they address issues of humanity in an ever more dissociated world.

 

Our intention is to move our viewers intellectually and emotionally at the same time -  in seeing patterns, symmetries, and how things fit together all the while discerning feeling and meaning.

SKIN DEEP

This 90-minute piece uses dance and theater to examine the often-complex attitudes of society towards women and women towards themselves. Renegade beauticians, Christmas Nativity pageants and childhood best friends join an irreverent band of characters in a world where movement is inspired by fashion magazines and childhood photographs, texts from beauty advertisements serve as everyday noise and Carolyn Ingalls and Harriet Oleson duke it out in the battle for ultimate role model.
