For the past three years choreographer Elisa Monte has embarked on works investigating the evolution and changes around us; from 2011’s premiere of Vanishing Language, which dealt with the disappearance of language, last years Unstable Ground, which encompassed the unexpected shifts in our environment. The 2013 premiere of Terra Firma continues this examination of uncertainty with a dance requiem to the many colleagues, close associates and friends of Monte who have passed on but still exist in Monte’s accumulated memories. Collaboration with contemporary composer Rubin Kodheli to create an original score inspired by the music of Meredith Monk, provides the perfect anthem to this thought-provoking work.
This 32nd season of Elisa Monte Dance features three premieres: Artistic director Elisa Monte’s world premiere of Terra Firma; Associate Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher’s company premiere of Identity; and dancer Joe Celej’s company premiere of Portals & Passageways.
