The body becomes an arena where dark forces struggle for dominion under the command of choreographer Alex Floyd. Since its formation in 2012, her experimental modern dance company known as OdDancity has given stark, malevolent life to concepts of fear and mortality. They have been covered before in Yay! LA, and will return for another stagebound psychological thriller this weekend at the Pieter Space in Lincoln Heights with their latest showcase, ScalDead.

Conceived in collaboration with dancers Timothy Marquis Johnson, Kistina Pressler, and Angela Todaro, ScalDead is an evening-length show characterized as “a staring contest with a nightmare.” But as the saying goes, if you stare into the abyss the abyss stares back into you. Writes Floyd: “ScalDead explores the instability of humans in their most raw form, diving into the subconscious in matters of death, pain, guilt, and grief.”

Take a look at the promo video below:

 

 

Attendees will be transported by the unsettling sounds of Aaron Dilloway. Before that, the night begins with a collaborative artist, Dan Reynold’s work, who has sketched the dancers in OdDancity and will have works available for sale before and after the show.  Drink and snacks will also be available (donation based).  Purchase tickets at the link below if you feel like taking that elevator down down down.
