ODC Theater Presents inkBoat with Guest Choreographer Ann Carlson: The Ones We Fell Among
October 16-18, 8:00 PM
inkboat commissions award winning interdisciplinary artist, Ann Carlson to make The Ones We Fell Among. This multi-phased performance project muses and reflects upon the movements, mythologies, behaviors and perceptions of earth’s largest land mammal, the elephant. With wild quiet and clumsy grace, Carlson borrows from the real, the imagined, and the symbolic to build a world of wonder and reckoning for master performers Shinichi lova-Koga and Dana lova-Koga.
inkBoat is a physical theatre and dance company founded by Shinichi Iova-Koga in 1998. Repertory and research integrate the interplay of multiple artistic disciplines and viewpoints, both experimental and traditional, resulting in compelling, body-based performance compositions. “inkBoat… mixes humor, introspection, playfulness and memory with fearless gestures and thoughtfully crafted drama.”
– Mary Ellen Hunt, SF Chronicle
Ann Carlson’s work often incorporates different movement components, speaking or acting components, and props or sometimes animals. “Ann Carlson is a conceptual artist who uses gesture, text and humor to break your heart.” —William Harris, New York Times.
Original (recorded) music by Carla Kihlstedt and Shahzad Ismaily.

We know living in the Bay Area is expensive. We also highly value the art onstage and are invested in supporting the artists that create it. Ticket prices only cover a small fraction of the resources invested in the performance and we strive to make them as accessible as possible. Continued financial support through ticket purchases and charitable donations from people like you make Art Access tickets possible.
