    Revolve: A Movement Display

    For our second year performing in Revolve, we're creating "Male | Female," a commentary on gender roles. Soundtracked by a discussion we hosted and recorded of male, female, and transgender artists, we'll showcase multi-form dance exploring what we've been taught, where it's brought us, and our hopes for the future. Come see us both nights alongside some of Austin’s most talented dance creators and performers!

     

    “Male | Female” dancers are Matt Shields, Michelle Barfield, Daniel Broxton, Cassidy Sainz, and Amir Hammoudeh. Recording by Michael Ryan Hernandez and Ben Lee.

  • Against Shadows Trailer

    Ten performers in five scenes explore racial and gender discrimination against graffiti sites in Austin and San Francisco.

    I Begin

    "I am literally smiling, now. I am really, truly filled with joy watching this. It exudes the joys of coming home. It's not quite like anything I've seen before. It feels like each of the places themselves are Stephanie’s dance partners, with Texas being her final, real partner. I did not see her dancing IN a place, as much as WITH a place."

    - Kathryn Taylor, viewer

    hide and seek

    With contemporary dance, spoken word, and tap, we presented this piece about receiving feedback as an artist 9 times in the San Francisco Bay Area. This particular performance took place at Dance Mission in October, as part of Colin Epstein's Constants And Variables 2015. 

     

    Dancing the piece are Bianca Mendoza, Suzy Myre, Courtney Armani, Seren Pendleton-Knoll, and Stephanie Patrick. Thank you to our donors, techies, show organizers, and everyone else who made this piece happen! 

     

     

    Last SF Show!

     

    This solo was performed at SAFE House Arts in May 2016, an improvised piece to "Love Me in Whatever Way" by James Blake. I requested to dance with the windows open, so I could look over San Francisco, while I performed there for the last time!

    Alternate

    This piece was dedicated to my late friend, Alex O'Brien. The first version was created by myself and Dana Jacklyn Roy, which is what this footage documents. Later versions included Bianca Mendoza and Nikki Bulman.

     

    This rehearsal footage was filmed at Principal Creative and Performing Arts in San Mateo, of whom presented Stephanie Patrick Dance The Starving Artists Award, 2015. This piece was shown at Spector Dance in Marina, CA, then Grace Cathedral and Dance Mission in San Francisco.

    Uncertainty

    We were honored to receive the Starving Artists Award from Principal Creative and Performing Arts for this piece in January 2015!! This was SPD's last performance at The Garage in San Francisco, CA before it moved to its new home at SAFE House Arts. August 2014. Dancers: Dana Jacklyn Roy, Joanna Gartner, Jack McGill, Stephanie Patrick.

    Balloons
