Tze Chun Dance Company in association with CPR present: TWO NEW WORKS FROM 2011
Created by Nicole Darling and Tze Chun
Set Design by Nicole Darling
Choreographed by Tze Chun
Performed by Tze Chun and Eileen Farrell
Original music by Daniel Iglesia

Flower and Willow is a dance-art performance inspired by the true-life story of Sada Yakko, a Japanese geisha who greatly shaped Western perception of Japanese theater and dance at the turn of the century. Although Sada Yakko was an international celebrity in her day, as a geisha trained in crafting an experience and sometimes an illusion, she remains a mystery in many ways. This dance navigates the layers of her somewhat mysterious motives and emotions and the interplay of her public persona and personal ambition. Through photography, movement, and mixed-media artwork, Darling and Chun investigate the story of a woman who emotionally overcame the social prejudices at home as she succeeded to gain the affections of audiences abroad.

Excerpts from TAKEN (2011)
Choreographed by Tze Chun
Performed by Tony Bordonaro, Elisa Davis, Adi Kfir, and Tim Ward
Original music by Richard Vagnino

TAKEN examines the concepts of transport and transition. What lessons do we learn from our experiences, that we then carry through life? What physical things do we desperately hold onto for a sense of security and permanence? A devised project, TAKEN draws imagery and details from the dancers' own experiences. Using the image of a suitcase (and its inherent associations) as a point of departure, TAKEN investigates the relentless human desire to hold, carry, and possess.

The dancers, collaborators and choreographer will be available for a short Q & A immediately following Friday's performance.
