NY Premiere of "Remains" by John Jasperse
Choreographer John Jasperse (Canyon, 2011 Next Wave) returns to BAM with a dance rumination on our existence in time. With a 30-plus-year presence in the downtown experimental scene, this veteran mines his own legacy and lineage, sampling fragments and phrases from the radical practices of his forbears while repurposing them within the contemporary present. Featuring a score by composer John King (Black Mountain Songs, 2014 Next Wave), dancers Maggie Cloud, Marc Crousillat, Burr Johnson, Heather Lang, Stuart Singer, and Claire Westby engage in a push and pull of return and reinvention, constructing an altogether new vision of our as-yet-unimagined future while reflecting on the remains left in our wake.
