BOOMERANG Dance and Performance Project presents a percussively visceral and psychologically dynamic new work, made in collaboration with Greg Saunier '91, drummer and founding member of the internationally acclaimed band Deerhoof.
Repercussion combines the daring and vulnerable artistry of dancers Matty Davis and Adrian Galvin with poetically nuanced choreography by Kora Radella. Saunier’s physically charged, expressive percussion sets the tone and further embodies the work’s fearlessly physical exploration of ‘active forgetting,’ based on new writing by MacArthur awardee and cultural critic Lewis Hyde.
“Brilliant. Exceptionally strong work. BOOMERANG made me listen. Whether to the breathing, or to the feet on the floor or to the musical instrument, it was all part of a unity. This is a work of extremes, from quick movements with violent attacks to soft interior moments. Geometric choreography is counterpointed with moments of free movement, with intelligent and carefully thought out use of space. Bravo.” ~Robert Wilson
Exploding relationships between movement and sound, BOOMERANG leaves audiences reconciling the possibilities of their own bodies.
