ODC Theater Presents inkBoat with Guest Choreographer Ann Carlson: These are the Ones We Fell Among
Friday-Saturday, November 5 & 6, 8 PM PT; Sunday, November 7, 4 PM PT
Available for on-demand viewing
Two human persons, trapped and transforming, enjoying an endless loop of abstractly absurd tender tomfoolery. These Are the Ones We Fell Among takes inspiration from the movements, myths and metaphors of our endangered animal cousins – persons called by other names, like “elephant.” Conceived, choreographed, written and directed by award-winning interdisciplinary artist Ann Carlson in collaboration with inkBoat, These Are the Ones We Fell Among grapples with elegance in the face of extinction, looking for humor and grace amid excrement, entropy, fear and fury. Performed by Shinichi and Dana Iova-Koga, with music by composers Carla Kihlstedt and Shahzad Ismaily, lighting by Allen Willner and scenic elements by Amy Rathbone.
These are the Ones We Fell Among is supported by the Mills Performing Artist-in-Residency program and the Kenneth Rainin Foundation.
inkBoat inhabits the interplay of multiple artistic disciplines and viewpoints, drawing primarily from the Japanese performing and martial arts, improvisational arts, and Daoist internal arts. inkBoat stage works border dance, performance art and theater, and are performed in theaters, museums, streets and abandoned spaces. Founded by Shinichi Iova-Koga in 1998, members are based in San Francisco, Luzern, New York, Paris and Berlin. "physical theater and dance company inkBoat... mixes humor, introspection, playfulness and memory with fearless gestures and thoughtfully crafted drama."
-Mary Ellen Hunt, SF Chronicle
ANN CARLSON is an award winning interdisciplinary artist whose work borrows from the disciplines of dance, performance and theater, as well as visual, conceptual and social art practices.
