Performance

TRIP THE SCRIPT is a visceral and personal foray into formative intimate experiences on compulsory heteronormativity. Moving fluidly through contemporary dance, folk dance, improvisation and clown, the artists unveil layers of coded behaviours and reconfigure them, reverse their meanings, and eventually render them as unrecognizable. This 15-minute duet will be performed at 8:00pm, 9:00pm, and 10:00pm at the outdoor pop-up stage at One Sixteen. Carol-Ann Bohrn and Alexandra Garrido are thrilled to rejoin forces onstage after COVID-19 abruptly ended their full-length performance together in By Grand Central Station at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in 2020. Alexandra Garrido (she/her) is interested in the embodiment of human experience/connection, grounded in exploration, improvisation and in alignment with cross disciplinary collaboration. She is affiliated with artists and organizations such as: Begonia, Camila Schujman, Carol Ann Bohrn, Heavy Bell, Joel Mierau, The Mariachi Ghost, Michelle Wilson, Mujer Artista, NAfro Dance Productions, Nova Dance Collective, Prairie Theater Exchange, Sam Penner, Sawdon Dance, Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers and Zorya Arrow. Their early interest and experience in dance began with Mexican and Spanish Folkloric Dance and Flamenco. She is a graduate of the School of Contemporary Dancers and is a University of Winnipeg Theatre Alumnus. Carol-Ann Bohrn (she/her) has lived in Winnipeg since 2011, and is entering her fourth season performing with Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers. Career highlights include four seasons with Gearshifting Performance Works, guest appearances with Outside Joke, Sick and Twisted Theatre's Threepenny Opera, and Prairie Theatre Exchange's By Grand Central Station for which she was nominated for an Evie Award for choreography. Carol-Ann holds a B.A. Honours in Dance from U of W, affiliated with the School of Contemporary Dancers. She has further developed her craft at Mentoring Artists for Women's Art, aceartinc., and with John Turner in Pochinko Clown training.
