New York Premiere

Company SBB // Stefanie Batten Bland

BAM DEBUT

 

A ship mast rises from the stage. It reaches towards our past and our present—recalling slave ships, memorials, and monuments—as meanings unfurl through dance.

This new dance-theater work from global artist Stefanie Batten Bland is an excavation of self and country, created in textiles, skin tones, labor, land, humor, and moving bodies. It invites reflection of our shared history and interrogates our relationships with memorialization, revealing post-colonial foundations and mythologies. Performed by an extraordinary cast of five, the work’s rich storytelling offers a visceral journey toward wholeness, connecting people and places through an unfolding time continuum.

 

Conceived and choreographed by Stefanie Batten Bland
Set design by Emmanuel Bastien
Dramaturgy by Guillame Segouin
Music by Paul Damian Hogan
