In New Faithful Disco, a dance work-in-progress by Los Angeles choreographer Meg Wolfe, belief is made manifest as energy. A trio of dancers—taisha paggett, Marbles (Rae Shao-Lan), and Wolfe—feel it, generate it and re-mix it as they prepare to take on something big. Love, faith, impermanence? Pleasure? Power? Soul retrieval? Disco is an accumulation and dispersion of bodies and effort and hope in the form of a dance. Featuring Maria de los Angeles (Cuca) Esteves’ layered score of nature sounds and disco rhythms transmitted by three cassette players, with stylings by Gregory Barnett.

Choreographer: Meg Wolfe
