ODC/Dance performs boulders and bones
Brooklyn Academy of Music, NY
Oct 25-28, 2017


Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival

In towering timelapse video, the dusty gestation of British land artist Andy Goldsworthy’s hillside sculpture Culvert Cairn unfolds. As a capstone rises to top the imposing monument, a group of lithe bodies emerges from behind the screen. In this meditation on permanence and decay by Bay Area-based choreographers Brenda Way and KT Nelson, the dancers of ODC/Dance leap and glide through the geologic evocations of RJ Muna’s cinematic mise-en-scène. Driven by cellist Zoë Keating’s propulsive live score, boulders and bones reveals the high drama simmering beneath Goldsworthy’s quiet earthen articulations.

Choreography by Brenda Way and KT Nelson
Original music by Zoë Keating
