She Shrieks

Performance 1999

28 min

Sara Gebran’s SHE SHRIEKS takes initiation in images by the New York police-photographer from the 1930-40’s, Arthur Felig, alias Weegee - the famous. Depicting the drama of the big city - the absurd, the grotesque, the violence and the after effects of criminal acts - the three dancers interact as wreckless furies in a realm of clashes and in-fights. The Japanese band RUINS, surrounds the dancers with aggressive post-punk, roaring silence contrasted by moments of tender femininity.

SHE SHRIEKS captures the chaotic despair of today’s urban life.

…a both original and compound work which confirms the impression of Sara Gebran as a highly personal and exciting choreographer…
