Ombra at Fifth Estate
Inspired by Dante's Paradiso, SAWTOOTH dancers presents Ombra, a multimedia dance performance embedded within a dance party. Drawing in part from a hypnotic, Butoh-inspired physicality, the dance performance emerges as episodic dreamscapes within a clubbing experience and a live cabaret. As the piece moves through sudden episodes and real time, sound artist, Michael Feld, orchestrates an eclectic sound score that moves between live percussion, surreal electronic sound art, and 90s dance hits.
Ombra (Italian for "shadow") generates a space that is both exciting and frightening at once. Ombra embeds paradise within hell, beauty within terror, and wants to reinvigorate these places as sites of healing and as the real, true sites of human ascendance.
