90 ways to Wake from drowning
The A.O. Movement Collective
A forcefully imaginative journey, this piece signifies choreographer Sarah A.O. Rosner’s arrival to the downtown dance scene as one of the community’s important emerging artists.
Utilizing a twisting narrative, Wake bends epic storytelling into an immediate visceral experience set amidst a visual wonderland of car crashes and heavy slow dances. Mixing contact partnering, modern releasing, and detailed gestures with a choreographic approach reminiscent of the lush explosions of action-movies, the piece is a love letter penned in the aesthetics of mess. As She struggles with Him, navigating devolving memories and shifting realities, we explore how effort transcends, time bends, and weight remembers.
