We Are Liminal!

by Spiralynn, Jill and Krista (Totem Polers), Leah Skerry, Christy Sanford & Kristin Langille

In this hybrid story, the performers at InesS explore the boundaries of their identities through movement as they take to the air on a variety of circus apparati (pole, flying pole, silks, trapeze, rope, and lyra).

“I am multiracial; I am liminal…”
“I am queer; I am liminal…”
“I am artistic; I am liminal…”

I stand at the threshold of both loss and becoming. To be my partial self is to be included and accepted, but to be my partial self is to not be myself at all.
While living in between becomes a push and pull between selves, and the desire to break out—to be one self—is easy and tempting, it is ultimately a denial of our selves. To be ourselves is to be a multiplicity and the only way to reconcile our fragmented, warring, lost, and lonely selves is to embrace the liminal together.

“We are liminal!”

In this hybrid story, the performers at InesS explore the boundaries of their identities through movement as they take to the air on a variety of circus apparati (pole, flying pole, silks, trapeze, rope, and lyra). They wrestle with their various selves as they spin, flip, and drop. Sometimes working independently and sometimes together on the apparati, they become both a welcoming source for one another and a space of exclusion. In the end, they show that liminality is a positive space that can be embraced.

The audience will be placed in their own liminal space as they walk between performances, kept behind either a clear wall, sheer curtain, or rope, never knowing which performance to take in. Like the clear spacers separating us physically during Covid-19 yet leaving us space to see one another, the audience will be asked (rhetorically) to consider their social positions in the new normal.

Note: attendees under the influence will be allowed to attend.
