More Information

Known in Los Angeles for his provocative choreography and commanding performances with David Roussève and LA Contemporary Dance Company, Kevin Williamson directs and performs Still or I’ve Been Choreographed. In this new evening length solo, he examines the ways his body has been disciplined as an expressive subject, morphing through quotidian actions and various dance genres to embody tensions of our political now.  Reading a letter to his idol, Janet Jackson, he poses questions to her about life while moving through his own discomforts and failures in hopes of finding renewal.

PRESS:  "Balletic quotations—arms raised high in a curved fifth en haut—cohabitate with pop culture references such as Beyoncé’s signature side-to-side neck bob and more quotidian sentiments, like waving goodbye.  To whom, or what doesn’t seem to matter, or concern us, as much as the flotsam and jetsam that accumulates in odd arrangements throughout Williamson’s tireless display of kinetic energy and range." -Christina Campodonico, Neon Tommy
