It is amazing that we have bodies. It is amazing our bodies can be seen. It is amazing those bodies can be seen and reach out to you and be reached by you. It's amazing those bodies smell so many different ways: like oysters, or caramelized onions, or root cellars in the fall. Lovertits takes the pro-sex flamboyance of traditional and neo-burlesque and smashes it together with the cerebral and awkward choreographic strategies of postmodern dance.

"Bodies are the locus for most meaning. The galloping amorphousness of Lovertits opened the gates to so much of it for me, my horses got tangled." -Kirsten Kaschock, thINKing Dance

The three performers grunt through the space. They climb tables. They drink the audience’s beer. Ilse Zoerb takes the ponytail baseball cap and screams “What the fuck is this hat on my head?” The hat owner give her a dollar. She brings it to the waist of her skirt then changes her mind. She tears the dollar up and yells “Suck it!” The audience hollars with support.

"Lovertits had an anti-climactic, non-event quality to me: a sort of collage of moments rather than the arc and fall of a particular scene. It wasn’t unpleasing but it did surprise me... [Lovertits] allowed the meaning inherent in what took place on stage to wash out over the audience at its own pace, letting a moment speak for itself rather than trying to speak through it."  -Kat Sullivan, thINKing Dance
