Shauna Elton has created Amae:
“No matter how wide she stretched her arms, the amount that she loved us was beyond her reach. It could not be quantified or contained. It was ten thousand named things in the Tao Te Ching’s universe and then ten thousand more. Her love was full throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Performed by Shauna Elton, Emmalena Fredriksson and Kate Franklin.
Guest artist Natalie Tin Yin Gan, in close collaboration with Alanna Ho, Aryo Khakpour and Michelle Lui, will present Level 10 Life:
“Four artists, forty hours. First, we asked: how close does intimacy sound? Then, we wondered: what are we doing together? Along the way, we embraced the tantric tyranny of aural pleasure. At last, we performed for each other, and then performed for you.”
Peter Bingham’s scored improvisation, Pillars, continues his exploration of how structure determines relationships, how freedom finds expression within restrictions. The dancers can only meet according to pre-set rules, but within this framework they are free to improvise. The architecture of the dancer’s body multiplied by seven transforms the space; through their dancing the space becomes the choreography. Performed by Delia Brett, Anne Cooper, Elissa Hanson, Arash Khakpour, Walter Kubanek, Diego Romero and Olivia Shaffer.
