Summary
This program focuses on choreographer/poet Claire Porter as she explores human anatomy in her full evening's piece Namely, Muscles. In this work she recites 30 plus poems that she has written as she performs movements that enact 68 major muscles of the body and then some. Poems include Psoas - The Tender Bender, Gluteus to my Ears, Long in the Head, Just the Meat, The Rotator Gang, Names on your Nerves, Tongues, And Now a Word From Our Tendons and more. "Claire Porter mines the extravagant, arcane and mundane names of muscles, their origins (and insertions), meanings and associations to produce a witty, smart and delightful evening of theater." Madeleine Scott, Director, School of Dance, Ohio University. Each program includes excerpts from an interview with the artist as well as an excerpt from Namely, Muscles
