Deborah Lohse, Donnell Oakley, and Cori Marquis’ B.A.N.G.S.: made in america is a kaleidoscopic pageant of status, attention, categorization, and femininity. In its first evening-length work, LMnO3 shape-shift in style and identity, donning everything from velvet evening wear, to ripstop jumpsuits, to snack-filled purses, to sensible bathing suits, as the dancers explore what they are—and aren’t—qualified to do. Serious play and creative instincts rule as the trio obsesses over the ideas behind B.A.N.G.S., a mnemonic device frequently used by French-language learners to remember which adjectives go in front of a noun: Beauty, Age, Number, Goodness, and Size. Utilizing hard rap, body percussion, headlamps, a game show, and the power of female relationships, this comedic trio sets aside its own fear and doubt, beginning to repurpose how we can unapologetically wear our own B.A.N.G.S.
