the undergird  (solo)

Meg Foley

Philadelphia + Los Angeles

JUNE 5, 9pm

Meg Foley’s The undergird began as a solo about death and grief as bodily experiences, that expanded into a quintet to encompass the collective experience of loss. Now in its latest manifestation, Foley returns again to the solo form, with the residual influences of the people and processes the work has gathered across its life. Developed using her singular improvisational practice “action is primary,” Foley’s masterful performance is crafted in the moment—painstakingly, rigorously. The undergird is a dance about mortality, birth, earth monuments and the body, alone and in congress. It asks: Where does one body end? What gets carried forward, and what remains?
