BORING ANGEL: THE PLASTIC PRACTITIONER
Boring Angel: the plastic practitioner is a multidisciplinary dance-based performance by acclaimed choreographer/performers Asher Woodworth (Portland, ME) and Hana van der Kolk (Troy, NY), featuring technical design by Ethan Kiermaier (Northampton, MA), and original costumes by Laura Andrighetti (Troy, NY).
The new work, which premieres at SPACE, explores a world in which objects and emotions are not different kinds of things, where power moves around fluidly, and technology is a religion. Through dance, visual design, text, and sound, Boring Angel presents a shifting visual and sonic landscape where events, bodies, and minds emerge and disappear in a non-hierarchical space of multiplicity and radical empathy.
