KineticArchitecture Dance Theatre cultivates work that is artistically progressive, socially relevant, and insanely irreverent in nature. On November 6, the company will present an excerpt from its new work NO SAFE WORD, which explores the need for connection based upon Director Arrie Davidson’s experiences as a professional Dominatrix, plus Cries Real Tears and Davidson’s take on Scheherazade.
Arrie Davidson, aka Faux Pas le Fae, is believed to be the reincarnation of Ruth St. Denis and has been described by critics as “the naughty lovechild of Modern Dance and a Burlesque Carnival” (NYTheater.com). A Transgender choreographer and founder of KineticArchitecture Dance Theatre, Arrie has performed for the Sean Curran Company, International Jazz Dance World Congress, the London Tour of the Musical Drama “TEXAS,” the New York Engagement of Ballet Preljocaj’s “Paysage apres la bataille,” Justin Bond’s House of Whimsey and The Box-NYC.
Choreographic/Teaching residencies include Ballet Arkansas, Lone Star Ballet, Stephens College, Cottey College, University of Houston and Central Oklahoma State University. She has served on the Faculty of Houston Ballet Academy, as Director of Education for New York City Ballet and the Northeast Board of ACDFA. Arrie received an M.F.A. in Dance from Sam Houston State University and is loved by children and cats
