Lily[bloom in my darkness] & LUNG
October 11-13 | 8PM
October 14 | 2PM

Erickson Theatre Off Broadway
Seattle, WA

Karin Stevens Dance presents an evening of two works in collaboration with award-winning composer/sound artist Kaley Lane Eaton: a reproduction of the award-winning lily[bloom in my darkness] and the premiere of LUNG. Together these pieces explore issues of migration, connection, and finding ones voice in the world today.

lily [bloom in my darkness] is a 35-minute electroacoustic opera for voice, live electronic processing, pulse sensors, violas, saxophone doubling clarinet, harp, and dance, with an original libretto by poet Felicia Klingenberg. Lily explores the psyche and heart of Lily Isabel Bunny, an orphan who fled England at the start of WWI. Through imagining a dream Lily may have had her first night sleeping in a cabin in the Pacific Northwest wilderness, this work examines her transformation upon entering a new world, exploring the experience of migration and displacement uniting our species.

LUNG is a collaborative work for dancers, musicians (bass flute, tenor saxophone, concert harp, two violas, and trumpet), six loudspeakers, and audience exploring the process of finding ones voice as both individuals and communities. Loudspeakers punctuate the space, laid out as a room-sized version of the respiratory system. Musicians and dancers move through the space as breath moves through the body when preparing to speak, and the audience is invited to follow, experiencing sounds from a variety of perspectives.

Stevens and Eaton seek to unlock the voices of the marginalized to tell the true stories of our time for posterity. Through both personal experience and observations of society, they understand that the voice can get caught deep in the lungs, never to escape and proclaim itself. But when the winning breath is taken  with help from those around us  the voice explodes in ecstasy, telling lost stories, and freeing the body.
