From Ash is a dance theater performance that responds to our current historical moment, when we often find ourselves picking up the pieces after natural and manmade disaster.
Equal parts dark dreamscape and hopeful choreo-poem, From Ash is about repeated renewal after destruction. How does the human spirit remain vibrant in spite of personal and cosmic pain?
Directed by Annie Kahane and created in collaboration with a cast of five performers, From Ash is derived from California Book Award Winner Tongo Eisen-Martin's 2015 poetry collection Someone's Dead Already. Using the poetry as a narrative & rhythmic guideline, the artists move seamlessly between dancing and speaking, turning the jazz-like cadence of the language into a theatrical experience.
Performers: Alexandria Diaz De Fato, Bianca Stephanie Mendoza, Courtney King, Jhia Louise Jackson & Kyle Limin
