Created, directed, and choreographed by Jodie Randolph Paralleled Dissonance is a 40 minute work developed in collaboration with Pure Existence dancers and original score by Andrew Harness. The work questions the undeniable tensions in our world through the subject of interpersonal conflict. Innate opposition becomes the source of investigation, offering a deep reflection of the polarity within ourselves. Our complicated need for human connection is countered by the wars that ensue between nations, between people, and ultimately within.
This piece served as Jodie Randolph's MFA Thesis in 2018 and is final of three seed pieces for Two Twelve.
