Borrowed Prey seeks to unveil spaces of connection/disconnection around death in our culture.
Where Borrowed Prey: part I looked at empathy and animal death, in Borrowed Prey: part II choreographer Carrie Ahern looks at empathy and human death. Borrowed Prey: part II asks: With modern culture's tendency to prolong life at almost any cost, are we capable of embracing death? Adapting video game technology to create a symbiotic relationship between movement and sound, it addresses the complicated relationship of the body to medical technology. The live ensemble, dancer and choreographer Carrie Ahern, Bessie Award winning dancer Carolyn Hall and composer/musician Anne Hege use their personal experiences of the dying process to inform the work. Where cultural dying ritual seems lacking in the Western world, Borrowed Prey: part II reveal a communal ritual that promotes connection. This ritual is supported by immersive original video by Harrison Owen, Sets and Lighting by Jay Ryan and costumes by Naoko Nagata. An intimate work viewed in-the-round, Borrowed Prey: part II presents a life-affirming interconnectedness as an alternative to our culture's current sanitized process.
Limited to 30 audience members per performance, 8 performances only.
