Alexa West

Occasion, Occasion, Occasion (2023)


Featuring five dancers responding to the space of the table — above, below, upon — Alexa West’s Occasion, occasion, occasion considers the social architecture of gathering. West’s placement of multiple tables provides both stage and platform, a space for presentation and for performance. The dancers embody different “character-ways,” — among them the go-go and ballet dancer, and the server, individuals whose actions occasionally coalesce to suggest a broader narrative.
