Base Occasional No. 3, co-presented with On the Boards:
Base and On the Boards co-present Minneapolis-based choreographer Morgan Thorson in her acclaimed ensemble dance installation, Still Life, Aug. 1 - 4, 2019 at Base. Featuring a cast of dancers from both Seattle and Minneapolis, Still Life is structured as a dance/time cycle, exploring what it means to “kill” choreography by erasing material with each repetition. With the dance staged in close proximity to the viewer, Thorson creates a space for contemplation, processes the violence of the present moment, and creates a long-form choreography that investigates dance as a living and dying thing.
The work will run in five-hour durational segments for four days at Base, and features a cast of dancers from Portland, Minneapolis and Seattle, including Alyza DelPan-Monley, Fox Whitney, Jordan MacIntosh-Hougham and Meredith Pellon (understudy).
