For the dance show Inherencies and Other Disorders, choreographer/dancer Darryl Tracy’s theme is exploring nature versus nurture. Tracy invited choreographers Lesandra Dodson and Keith Cole to join him in creating original thematic works, and the evening is rich in choreography.
Dodson’s duet In 2 days a man can change for Tracy and Ric Brown is inspired by The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard. It is a very clever fusion of words and movement which is a Dodson hallmark.
Darryl Tracy’s Casa 1: faraway we walk closely, a trio of shifting relationships for women, and Casa 2: proximal, a homoerotic quartet for men, share a common choreographic language, but differing theme.
Cole is a gay activist and his Dodged Bullets/Missed Opportunities, a solo for Tracy, features silver lamé briefs and a diaphanous sequined shirt worn by a character who goes on an openly gay journey from disaster to defiance.
Inherencies and Other Disorders continues at the Winchester Street Theatre until Sept. 4.
