THE BROOKLYN RAIL, NYC
knowing juxtaposition of coyness and badassery
July 2017, Ivan Talijancic

Driven by the current political climate, “Tremendous,” connects individual stories of the female experience to the spectrum of social injustices and an extraordinary need for unity. Noworol and her five dancers, along with a live composer/musician, expose shared vulnerabilities and defense mechanisms to celebrate the durability & persistence of female strength. Can we unify selectively? Can we be distilled to only one of our defining characteristics? How do we choose which parts of us to defend when oppressed from several angles? The work entwines contemporary dance, tanztheater and spoken word in an emotionally salient and politically driven visual space. “Tremendous” is a joyful and playful celebration of us all… and we rise.
