Take Root - October: Who Knows the Show/Aya Jane Saotome & Nattie Trogdon and Hollis Bartlett @ Green Space | New York | United States

TAKE ROOT IS A MONTHLY CURATED SERIES THAT SUPPORTS DANCE MAKERS BY PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT A PAIRED EVENING OF WORK. PARTICIPATING ARTISTS BUILD THEIR BODY OF WORK; NETWORK WITH FELLOW CHOREOGRAPHERS, DANCERS, AND COLLABORATORS; AND FIND NEW AUDIENCES.

Who Knows the Show presents a journey from East to West and beyond! From rural Japan to New York City, everyday life and extraordinary events are told through dance, theater, comedy and music. Directed and choreographed by Aya Jane Saotome in collaboration with the dancers and musicians.

A collaged duet performance work, O Fallen Angel utilizes the body and performance as a vessel – a container for meaning-making. Confronting our collective and personal assumptions, perceptions, desires and relationship to the moving body on stage; this work is expressed through a patchwork of images, rigorous repetition, stillness, and deep formalism. O Fallen Angel is a vase for the audience to fill and a vase for the performer to hold. It is a work about ghosts and Enya, Florida, deserted places, mundane tasks, Haint Blue, relationship, desire, shame, rigor, repetition and what we hide under the surface – just right under the surface.
