Take Root with Drastic Action
« on: November 13, 2014, 11:16:24 PM »
Take Root presents Drastic Action on December 12th & 13th

Drastic Action will premiere “Dis/Location,” a half-hour dance based on Geismar’s experience as the child of an immigrant and on interviews with immigrants from all over the world. Four human-sized canvas sacks alternately transport, confine and protect the dancers. The piece explores the painfulness of leaving home, the rituals we use to make a new home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and our struggle for connection with one another. The company will also perform “Attachment” (2014) a duet exploring the push and pull of our earliest relationships with original music by Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee, Annabelle Chvostek.

Tickets $15
37-24 24th St, #301
Long Island City, NY 11101
