Danse Perdue: Irruptions

Butoh: Danse Perdue (Alex Ruhe, Kaoru Okumura, Vanessa Skantze)
Sound: Noisepoetnobody, Joy Von Spain, loopool

An exquisite night of structured improvisation encompassing surges and shocks, dancing the adaptive mutation of creatures and nature’s unbridled exuberance in the face of humankind’s wanton destruction. We celebrate the scavengers foraging at the borders of the civilized world, crafting their own makeshift environments and thriving in their afflictions. Each dancer will be paired with a musician. There will be three solos — each dancer with their musician partner, then one brief duet as a dancer/musician pair comes in at the final of last solo, and then a trio as the third dancer/musician pairing enters the fray.
