Umwelt Dance Theater and SAWTOOTH dancers will share a Season at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange (Park Slope, Brooklyn) in February 18-19, 2011 at 8:00pm. Tickets are 2 (0 students) and can be purchased from BrownPaperTickets.com

This collaboration between Umwelt and SAWTOOTH came about through their shared belief that dance can operate as a unique anthropological medium. Headed by Artistic Director Cristina Jasen, SAWTOOTH dancers will present world-premiere "Mouth for String: Parts I through V" a piece that peels away images like an onion, revealing layer by layer unanticipated depth in relationships, blindsiding changes in alliances, and increasing adherence to odd rituals and psychological dispositions. Umwelt Dance Theater’s Artistic Director Gillian Vinton will present three short dances, two of which are world-premieres, that strive to embrace the dancing body’s dual nature, that of both artistic medium and expressive character. Together, Umwelt and SAWTOOTH’s shared program will represent a unique and visceral investigation of concepts that shape the matrices of modern human interaction.
