Restrained-by Christina Plaschka

Concept:Christina Plaschka

I wanted to explore the feelings of being trapped, both physically and mentally, during quarantine. I was inspired by the haunting images and music of a piece from Broken Rhythm’s show Grim entitled “The Handless Maiden”. While the execution of live motion pictures did not go completely as I had envisioned it in my head, the restriction of movement definitely captured my feelings of uncertainty and anxiety over the past several months.

Christina is a founding member of Broken Rhythms. She was set to perform in Broken Rhythm’s newest work ‘Into the Wire’ that was subsequently canceled due to COVID. She is always grateful for the opportunity to explore and create.

We want to create and be a support to local dance artists and companies while providing payment and a safe environment for all artists involved. We have put a call out to the Broken Rhythms dance company members and challenged them to develop a small act of creation in 5 hours. The focus of these small acts of creation is to begin creating again and see if anything develops. We want to plant small creative seeds in the community and see if anything grows.
