Choreographed and Directed by:  Catherine Galasso
Featuring:  Christine Bonansea and Marina Fukushima

ODC Theater Resident Artist Catherine Galasso debuts her latest piece, Bring on the Lumière!, an evocative dance-theater-light installation inspired by the lives and work of the Lumière Brothers, French founders of cinema. Following a twisting path where the images of their canonical works are re-imagined and re-told through dance, video, and theatrical illusion, the brothers find themselves in a fantastical world of beautifully fleeting, living moments and images, further and further estranged from the world of their 19th century "actualité" - or documentary - films. Bring on the Lumière! ultimately offers a meditation on personal and popular history, heritage and legacy, transience and immortality.
