Karin Stevens Dance presents their new work, Record of the Anthropocene Movement premiering March 16 – 19, 2017 Taproot Theatre Company’s Isaac Studio Theatre
Record of the Anthropocene Movement is a collaboration between Karin Stevens, photography Omar Willey and composer Paul Rucker. Also featuring lighting by Sara Torres, costume design by Ali Rose Panzarella and dancers Naphtali Beyleveld, Timothy Johnson, Philippa Myler, Anja Kellner-Rogers, Noelle Price, Kelly Taylor, Alexandra Beatty Spencer, and Maia Veague.
Based on the “Five Elements” (or “Five Processes”) of Chinese philosophy, this piece connects dancers to the elements that make up Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Their movements play out a history, a present, and some possible futures of the region in the era of the Anthropocene. Images from six years of photography project onto both the stage and the dancers themselves, to create an environment that illuminates the dancers’ external world and their internal states. A unique combination of static and moving images and three dimensional projection merges with the physical bodies of the dancers as they search for harmony and explore the precarious balance of humans and their environment.
