A femme dancer wearing a black slip dress and one black heel standing on the shoeless foot with the other leg extended and clutching the missing black heel. She looks down with hands out to the side.

Hi Jinx

Academy Hall

Liz Aggiss performed a lecture entitled Hi Jinx, an homage to Heidi Dzinkowska, a seminal (and fictional) early 20th-century dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker. A cheeky take on the creation of mythologies, personal gurus, and the history of art, the event featured dance reconstructions, films, and live demonstrations of Dzinkowska’s highly influential “dance commandments.” 

Aggiss is a performer, choreographer, filmmaker, and writer whose provocative and eclectic work is often characterized by grotesque, stylized movement, and who explores issues of body politics, wordplay, power, and the artifice of performance.
