Imposter/Malleable is an experimental dance work exploring concepts of persona, adaption, and transformation in response to situations of the physical and social realm. Performers are introduced from multiple habitats, ranging from an informal dressing room to a narrow wing space, and finally from formal center stage. Dancers move readily from space to space; utilizing an exaggerated animation of body parts, including but not limited to the face. An evening of vignettes unfolds to reveal eccentric movement entrenched within a world of evolution and periphery.   An emphasis is placed on the physicality of expression employing an exaggerated animation of the whole body. Textile and set installation pieces, designed by Amanda Lee Franck exist as framing pieces, wearable items, and as visible topography within the space. At times, performers inflate, affix, and discard these items; blurring the lines of what is costume, set, and an unidentifiable malleable piece interacting with the dancer to evoke a variety of potent images.
