Take Root presents Aimee Plauche & Performers and Rastro/Julieta Valero

Aimee Plauche & Performers: The Octopus: fascinating, poorly understood, and often grouped under the misnomer "octopi." In this absurdist and darkly comic dance theater work, the doomed cephalopod faces the miracles and pitfalls of its isolated existence. Among larger philosophical crises (Existentialism! Dehumanization! Individualism!), the octopus will tackle the day to day challenges of octopus dating, octopus wrestling, octopus anxiety, and more. Via these unexpected protagonists, About an Octopus looks at the "other" as simply another dimension of us.

Rastro/Julieta Valero: Cancionero is a nostalgic piece that explores the dichotomy of being alone while within a sea of people. Very much like being in NYC, for many, that sense of being connected while at the same time feeling very isolated. The movement, combining simple gestures and elaborate choreography, exploits the humanness of the body and its beauty, through a diverse musical backdrop.
