Hailed as one of Maria Caruso’s greatest solo creations to date, Metamorphosis has been performed across the globe since its premiere at Israel’s Karmiel Dance Festival in 2018. The evening length performance took root after Caruso’s extensive work with the Martha Graham Contemporary Dance Company and the artistic evolution resulting from her performances of Martha Graham’s iconic solo Lamentation. Hungry to create an expansive work for the world’s stage, Metamorphosis was born. The work is an emotional journey through life’s many transitions, and it is based on her own experiences but broadened to be more universal. Throughout the performance the audience is immersed in Caruso’s drastic emotional shifts as she uses a series of costume changes into differently colored dresses as a metaphor for turning points in her character’s journey.

Take Root: Hee Ra Yoo and N/N Dance Collaborative — Online
Take Root August features works by Hee Ra Yoo and N/N Dance Collaborative. The Korean phrase “거의 다왔는데” means reaching for something that is just a little too far, but possible to obtain, roughly translated to English as “almost there.” Yoo and Dancers’ new work is about our collective dream to reach our desires in a modern, chaotic world. The dancers represent a crowd becoming a stampede, a warning of one possible outcome of our current path. Almost There was developed during Yoo and Dancers’ three-month residency at Dixon Place. N/N Dance Collaborative presents a selection of dance works crafted in situ, where movement and location are fully integrated. Nancy Brier’s Breezeblocks (2019), Mother Earth Sings (2021) and Now Was Zen (2021) are works that submerge us in otherworldly environments and take us out into raw nature – searching for humanity’s delicate balance between social and environmental, between dysfunction and transformational change. Nicole Speletic’s DNA (2019) and Dis-Ease (2020-21) peer into internal spaces, the ones deep within ourselves and the ones that we intimately inhabit — places which quietly bear witness to the lived moments we nightly withstand or daily pass through (created in Ljubljana, Slovenia).

Confronting our collective and personal assumptions, perceptions, desires and relationship to the moving body on stage; this work is expressed through a patchwork of images, rigorous repetition, stillness, and deep formalism. O Fallen Angel is a vase for the audience to fill and a vase for the performer to hold. It is a work about ghosts and Enya, Florida, deserted places, mundane tasks, Haint Blue, relationship, desire, shame, rigor, repetition and what we hide under the surface – just right under the surface.

Take Root – December: wantheatre/Huwang Zhang
Wan Dance Theater/Huiwang Zhang: Zhang’s new evening-length work, Degrees of Freedom, explores the concept of “self-reliance” within a tediously set choreographic structure. The piece begins with a solo body inquiring in task-based movement. Henry David Thoreau’s writing on the duty of civil disobedience in Walden inspires the work to expand into a trio experimenting with physical and social limitations of each individual. The dancers move on the premise of gravity and exist beyond the color of their skin. Degrees of Freedom begins the search for a structure that can allow individual free will to manifest, interact and disobey. Earlier stages of this work have been supported by the Queens Council on the Arts’ Independent Artist Grant.

Take Root: Biodynamic Movement Inc/Fisher & Choi, Syren Modern Dance
Biodynamic Movement Inc. / Fischer & Choi: In grappling with the dark and light aspects of being, this piece invites images of gore and transcendental flight. It quietly asks the audience to embrace their hidden desirable and undesirable expressions. Resistance is Fertile’ is at times a movement monologue invoking a circle of 1000 dialogues while set against the stark contrast of minimal stage design. This piece’s inspiration explores what happens when one may be removed from instinct and possibly devoured by the powers that be, metaphorically and literally. Syren Modern Dance: Thina meaning us/we in Zulu, is an ongoing project created by Kate St. Amand for the dancers of Syren during the Covid-19 pandemic. Inspired by music of South African composers Reuben T. Caluza, Philip Miller, and Ann Masina, Thina is a multi-phasic project that continues to unfold in real time, uniquely shaped by the ever-shifting conditions of the Covid-19 Pandemic. After 21 months away from performing in person, Syren is overjoyed to perform in NYC at Take Root in November, and to share phase 3 of Thina as a robust, full contact, group dance.
