By turns heartfelt, visceral, wicked, and tender, World's on Fire explores the cyclical nature of human experience. The smoldering choreography and fiery music, performed live by the renowned ensemble The Crooked Jades, lets us glimpse a slice of American life through the vivid portal of sound and movement. The Jades work their magic within the lineage of old-time music. Building upon Weare?s 2010 collaboration with The Jades, World's on Fire, co-directed by Weare and ODC Founding Director Brenda Way, touches on themes of kinship, belief, codes of honor, love, and the will to endure.
