ODD - AXIS Dance Company, inkBoat & Joan Jeanrenaud
ODD will be an evening-length triptych choreographed by Shinichi Iova-Koga in collaboration with AXIS Dance Company and composer/musician Joan Jeanrenaud. The collaboration is inspired by the paintings of Odd Nerdrum, an Iceland-based contemporary painter whose work evokes classical styles/approaches that evokes Rembrandt, yet contains content which merges archaic existence with modern artifacts.
Choreography: Shinichi Iova-Koga
Composer: Joan Jeanrenaud
Performers: Rodney Bell, Sherwood Chen, Janet Das, Sonsherée Giles, Sebastian Grubb, Peiling Kao, Dana Iova-Koga, Shinichi Iova-Koga, Joan Jeanrenaud, Yu Ko, Dohee Lee, Alice Sheppard.
"AXIS, gripping, moving and exciting performance." Jennifer Brewer, The Portland Press Herald
"Jeanrenaud's sheer technical virtuosity is what a listener notices first--the full-voiced beauty of her string tone, her melodic fluency, her rock steady ryhthmic control."
Joshua Kosman, SF Chronicle
"...inkBoat is at the forefront of a new generation. Founder Shinichi Iova-Koga creates startlingly imaginative psychological journeys of humor and horror..."
