Julia Crockett & Group joins Movement Research at Judson Church with Tiny Parties, a piece with eight dancers donning the playful wardrobe by Bailey Salisbury. The wardrobe unifies the ensemble to enhance Crockett’s exploration of the high intensity group dynamics so often found in team sports. Ultimately, the pumped up, raucous first half (driven by Colin Self’s electrifying original score) evolves into an examination of more personal, intimate moments--the kind shared between lovers or dear friends. These smaller moments become a collective experience between the ensemble. The piece finishes with score by Carl Stone and all eight dancers moving through small, human gestures in unison.
