[8:tension] Young Choreographers' Series

Dana Michel (CA)

Yellow Towel

When Caribbean-Canadian artist Dana Michel was young, she liked to wrap a yellow towel around her head and over her black, frizzy hair. She wanted to see what she would look like with a long blond mane. This is the autobiographical starting point of an impressive solo piece which was conceived after a workshop with Ivo Dimchev at ImPulsTanz 2011. In it, the character portrayed by Michel ruffles African American clichés that come with certain symbols and modes of behaviour in a stirringly personal and artistic manner. To do so, she takes on various different roles, from an old man to a baby in the course of a stereotypified socialisation. Not without reason did a Canadian theatre magazine label the piece “a revolutionary performance” and did the New York Times talk about  "Yellow Towle" as one of this year’s most remarkable productions.
