Garden, 2011

About Press Credits Gallery

Garden is a 35-minute quartet that unfurls in a lush, softly menacing atmosphere featuring an upside-down tree created by scenic designer Kurt Perschke and exquisitely lit by designer Brian Jones. Using an arresting choreographic language of paired unison that ranges from sensuous and delicate to severe and propulsive, Garden draws on primitive issues of origination, collective identity and safety amid the uncontrollable natural world. Two men and two women frolic, flirt and fight in the wake of the unknown, eliciting a world of sensuality and innocence with some dark undercurrents.
