Victoria Marks Performance: An evening of short and experimental dance and dance films


TAMPA, FL – Hillsborough Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Series presents Victoria Marks Performance on October 21st and 22nd in the HCC Mainstage Theatre at 7:30 pm

Victoria Marks brings an evening of short and experimental dance and dance film works to HCC’s Mainstage Theatre. In this program, Marks presents “Captiva” the U.S. premiere of her new dance film collaboration with Margaret Williams and Willy Souly. This film was created during a Rauschenberg Foundation residency at Robert Rauschenberg's twenty-acre estate on Captiva Island. The film considers the way drones are both toys and weapons.

The performance also features duets and solos performed by the extraordinary Alexx Shilling and Willy Souly and the Florida premieres of “Solar Duplex,” “Tourette Floret” and “Not Everything is About You”.
A special addition to the program will include “Watch It” a work in progress, and an untitled work performed by the HCC Dance Ensemble.

Ever experimenting with movement vocabularies and the way the architecture of a dance inflects a viewer’s experience, Victoria Marks enjoys asking, “What can a dance do, and what can a dance be?

Victoria Marks, an Alpert Award winner, Fulbright Distinguished Scholar, and Guggenheim and Rauschenberg Fellow, has been practicing knowing and unknowing, making dances for stage and film, for 37 years. Victoria Marks’s work migrates between “choreo-portraits” and “action conversations” for individuals who don’t identify as dancers, and dances for dancers that fuel her inquiries into movement. Consistent across all is the project of rendering those who are invisible, visible, thru live performance and film. Additional awards, honors and bio information can be found at

“A choreographer of superior intelligence, lyricism, and wit” - Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice
