"Cheerleaders at a Wedding"

Cheerleaders at a Wedding comments on wedding culture and the hype associated with women being brides.  The work began as a trio and has been developed as a duet as well as an ensemble with up to 12 women.  This piece has been performed in theaters and festivals as well as weddings, benefits, basements, and living rooms. Yes, we do parties.

REVIEW

… Walsh composes her dancers’ personalities, theatricalizing function. Cheerleaders mixes characters like watercolors. Molly McSherry suffers from committed, sly exhaustion. Ho-Ju Wu is stern as a nun. Lauren Kravitz, dimly optimistic… Mantell is bipolar - a scorned lover and powerless brute as she wipes away tears with middle fingers.

Indah Walsh… provided a comic performance of “Cheerleaders at a Wedding,” and even invited audience participation by clapping.
