The Lipstick Flock says
Premiering at the CAC, The Lipstick is a provocative dance performance accompanied by solo violin and a tube of lipstick.

Daring, discomfiting, and darkly hilarious, The Lipstick treads the fine line between what is sacred and what is profane, as choreographer Meryl Murman reflects on her Arab ancestry and the complexities of a diasporic culture. Armed with only a bullet of red lipstick on a minimalist set, the performers weave through shifting landscapes as they illustrate the relationship between identity and geography with rigorous athleticism and aggressive sensuality.
