“To All Our Ends” is an all-female contemporary work exploring how women balance nature and instinct with expectations of self and community. It was commissioned by Santa Barbara Dance Theater. “Allhimod” is a large group work commissioned by New Century Dance Project and inspired by music from composers Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood and the Rajasthan Express. It celebrates the human spirit and its will to survive and thrive under challenging conditions through the practice of compassion, humility, and grace.
“War Song” was inspired by Radiohead’s 2009 “Harry Patch (In Memory Of),” a tribute to the oldest survivor of World War I in the UK at the time. Lead singer Thom Yorke says, “It would be very easy for our generation to forget the true horrors of war, without the likes of Harry to remind us. I hope we do not forget.”
THREAT is immersive theater and dance as therapy. Its story involves three archetypes — ruler, ruled, rebel — caught in a timeless conflict, and an audience spurred into taking sides. Throughout the interactive performance, the audience is primed to examine how we unconsciously re-enact narratives of authority — and how we might evolve. (Sugarcane Magazine)
