ODC Theater Presents
Tere O'Connor Dance
November 14-16, 8 PM
Long Run (2017) pushes the emotional content of O’Connor’s movement to new physical extremes, allowing time-based elements like polyrhythms, velocity, and duration to become major forces in the work, overtaking the eight performers as they struggle to bring their bodies into a state of calm.
Tere O’Connor’s choreography finds its logic outside of “translation,” operating in a sub-linguistic area of expression. He views dance as a system with its own properties; an abstract documentary form that doesn’t depict or explain. O’Connor’s collaborators constitute a family of artists dedicated to expanding the potency of dance as a serious art form. Meaning is arrived at in collaboration with the audience with dance’s endlessly diverse, open-ended, and referential scope.
On Thursday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m., Director of ODC Theater, Julie Potter will present a preview of ODC Theater’s 2020 Season as tickets for next year go on sale.
Following the performance on Friday, November 15, ODC Writer-in-Residence Sima Belmar will moderate a conversation with Tere O'Connor.
On Saturday, November 16 from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., as part of the ODC Theater Institute, Tere O'Connor and Silas Riener will teach a dance workshop based on the composition of a solo featured in Long Run at the ODC Theater. Participation in the workshop is free; to register, RSVP to email@example.com.
