Pat Graney – Girl Gods

November 18-19, 2016
Friday – Saturday at 8:00PM

The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse | 404 NW 26th Street | Wynwood

Guggenheim Award-winner and Seattle-based choreographer Pat Graney is known for her use of fantastic, dreamlike, sometimes disturbing images. In Girl Gods, Graney takes inspiration from the feminist artists of the 70s, exploring the ancestry of women, family history, and rage. The fierce women of Girl Gods may be wearing cocktail dresses and little heels, but their explosive physical language and wry humor reveal the anger simmering under the surface of the collective feminine mind.
