INTER|NATIONAL SERIES Weekend One / Program A
Gu Jiani (Beijing, China) studied ballet and classical Chinese dance, blending both in her own movement language. Her ominous work Right & Left fuses aggressive precision with an arresting mix of projection and light to examine our oldest questions: Why do we love, and how do we stop it from destroying who we are?
Khambatta Dance Company (Seattle, WA) presents Your Freedom (is not) My Freedom, portraying the stifling of a polarized nation and continuing its exploration of haunting psychosocial themes of our times. The fifth work in a series of ten – a halfway point – that examines the eclipsing of human freedom.
