SPRAWL is the culmination of a year-long series with works presented at Link’s Hall (Chicago) and Velocity Dance Center’s Bridge Project (Seattle). The work explores the motivations and repercussions of suburban sprawl through movement, song, and spoken word.
“McGovern’s explorative approach is engaging. She exemplifies a documentarian style with her visitation to historic industrial growth, urban sprawl, and cultural disparity. It’s an approach filled with beautifully lined choreography, reflecting on past events that continue to challenge the nation in the present. Sprawl demonstrates her ability to provoke thought through dance. Watch for her upcoming works, as she is sure to make an impression on the Seattle dance scene.”
