  • ODC Theater Festival 2021: NAKA Dance Theater and Catherine Galasso & Dave Cerf

    NAKA Dance Theater's And the Twins Return is a meditation on bewitchment and calamity, deception and possession, inspired by images from Northern Japan and Southern Mexico. (Alone Together)2 Choreographer Catherine Galasso and composer Dave Cerf created Alone Together in 2018 as a site- specific work for ODC’s B. Way Theater. By flipping the orientation of the proscenium and placing the audience on the stage and the performers in the seats, the piece playfully dissected the relationship between viewer and subject. For the 2021 Festival, Galasso and Cerf have created a filmic response to their original collaboration; part documentary, part mystery-poem.

  • ODC Theater Festival 2021: Margaret Jenkins & Rinde Eckert & Geoff & Dan Hoyle

    In 1977, Geoff Hoyle became a Dad. In 2015, his son Dan became a Dad. Sometime in between then, they performed together for a bit, but it’s been ten yearssince that happened. And this is the first time they will be performing together as official, card-carrying Dads. They don’t know what to expect, but chances are there will be songs, skits, musings, maybe a character or two, and a laugh or three. From the solitary birds to the flocking birds, from the baggage of culture to the nature of culture, from the water to the sky, from the ritual of death, the divorce from the garden, from the funeral of drowned diver to the mythos of ibis or swan... For the 2021 ODC Theater Festival, Margaret Jenkins and Rinde Eckert premiere a new duet thematically related to their previous 3 duets: Shorebirds Atlantic, And So They, and Shadows & Water.
