NYC Premiere: September 29 - October 1, 2022
at Triskelion Arts, Brooklyn
YOU ALWAYS DO THIS TO ME is a new dance-play that finds the Audience and the Performer caught in a tangled relationship. We watch as these not-quite-lovers replay memories of the past, unfurling their circular symbiosis through dance and conversation. Movement winds itself into gestural particulars and releases into stormy unison, and spoken text invokes a lyrical vignette of love, lust, and social disruption. Youthful imagery hides a long and turbulent history in scenes that search for logic in the collision of disparate characters who are bound to each other by forces of circumstance. Like the structure of the piece, the setting is both surreal and familiar–a cozy living room in the house where all your childhood dreams took place. You Always Do this to Me asks, “How do we keep ending up here together?”
