Tara Friedenberg & Alexandra Clancy Chat #DOTE 2019 with the Jewish Independent!

“In the studio, I have been mining my own complicated and unhealthy relationship with my body as a #dancer in a #female body with the help of my amazing collaborators/performers. The process so far has involved exploring how the forms of stand-up #comedy and #dance can express this difficult, and often absurd, story of struggling with body image that many of us share.” – Tara Friedenberg.

“Throughout the rehearsal process, there would be a back and forth of ideas; sometimes I would have a rhythmical phrase of tap dance and Mike would then create a melody over top, and sometimes Mike would compose a phrase of the melody and I would choreograph specifically to that part of the tune. After some give and take between our prospective instruments and ideas, we solidified a melody and then decided upon the structure of the tune. Some of the tune is improvised, some is a conversation, and some is very set and predetermined. We both enjoyed the collaborative process and found a harmonious way to create music and dance together.” – Alexandra Clancy
