Two Twelve is the final installation of a three-year performance project by Choreographer Jodie Randolph.
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. A contrast between the individual versus the collective, this work explores themes of dependence, individuality, and manipulation set in motion by a series of reactions that reach for a tipping point and question the boundary between self and other.

"Jodie Randolph’s “Two Twelve” stood out for its echoes of contact improvisation and capoeira, each move perfectly calibrated to Andrew Harness’s “Found Sounds” percussion score." - Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe
"Jodie Randolph of Ann Arbor, MI holds nothing back in “Two Twelve,” a hard-hitting, powerhouse trio danced by Christina Perry, KP Pollack and Megan Scheppelman. As they pounded on a flimsy folding table, I envisioned the rat race of women in a board room, the three tumbling over, under, and around their rattling prop." - Lauren Warnecke, Art Intercepts
