Dumbo Redacted - a work in progress
"Dumbo Redacted" is a solo stage based work choreographed and performed by Carlson. It is informed by the movement, and mythologies surrounding earth's largest land mammal. Set inside a circus ring and caught in a story out of sequence and out of date, "Dumbo Redacted" plays with clumsy grace and wild quiet as it collides and colludes with time, gravity, fury, and redemption.
Dumbo Redacted is being supported by a multiple residency award from the Maggie Allessee National Center for Choreography and is projected to be completed by 2018.
