Hiponymous is a crew of two, comprised of Renée Copeland and Genevieve Muench. With an ever-evolving aesthetic, the duo is committed to making work that values community, social justice, and queer/feminist representations.
Hiponymous' signature choreography delivers simultaneously subconscious and overt approaches to unison and punctuation of movement through rhythm. We create unpredictable pockets in performance, where inventive impulse and phrasing bring a gritty utility to our storytelling. Tonal dramatic shifts roll through the body like mercury, dancing the range from humor to horror.
