Take Root with Donofrio Dance Company and Laurie Hockman
« on: February 24, 2014, 04:00:55 PM »
Take Root presents Donofrio Dance Company and Laurie Hockman:
 March 14th & 15th at 8pm
 Donofrio Dance Company’s “RAM” takes you into a world where memories are being revealed and where people are encapsulated by their past. The evening length dance work has become a manifestation of physical responses to memory as the company underwent a process of “memory experiments,” a way to recall memory and connect it to physical movement. Memories unfold through mounted projectors on each performer, revealing each personal attachment and recall of these memories. The multimedia fused work includes an original score by Ryan Campos, as well as short films created by Ace Salisbury.
 Laurie Hockman’s “settled gravity” uses Shakespeare’s sonnets to create a world and a character who explores the themes of love, loss, and time’s cruelty. Driven by the atmosphere and passion of composer Kayhan Kalhor’s “Silent City,” the work seeks to capture the imagery and feeling of the poems, making connection between the language, the amplified gesture of the movement, and the immanence of space.
 Tickets $15
