ODC/Dance explores censorship and environmental issues through movement in two world premiere works and revisits 2014's sold-out hit boulders and bones during the 44th season of ODC/Dance Downtown.
A site-specific piece performed on Alcatraz celebrating the work of activist artist Ai Weiwei is reimagined on the YBCA Theater stage in Brenda Way’s and KT Nelson’s The Invention of Wings. Using video by RJ Muna and “Weiwei-isms,” Wings expands beyond the stage to give voice to the many that cannot use their own.
A sabbatical in Death Valley serves as the inspiration for KT Nelson’s Dead Reckoning. Original music from celebrated Kronos Quartet cellist Joan Jeanrenaud underscores the story of how humanity has lost its way, and the impact that has on the surrounding natural forces.
ODC/Dance revisits the stunning evening-length piece boulders and bones, inspired by the work of visual artist Andy Goldsworthy, featuring live cello accompaniment composed by Zoë Keating and performed by Erin Wang, scenic design by Alexander V. Nichols, video designs by RJ Muna, and lighting design by Matthew Antaky.
