BARDO | Delicate Fish
February 27 - March 7, 2020 at Shaking The Tree Theatre
Friday Feb 28th includes ASL interpretation
Portland, OR - In the stall of winter, two solo pieces, “BARDO”, a dance theater piece by Lyra Butler-Denman, and “Delicate Fish”, a dance piece by Jess Evans, are presented alongside and in communication with one another.
To die is a process whose edges are feathered in all directions.
To grieve is to feel love that has nowhere to go.
To heal is to touch with love that which was previously touched by fear.
BARDO - A conversation and a conjuring, BARDO embodies the transition states of dying, of grieving, of a relationship moving from the physical plane to existing, maybe (we hope), somewhere else. It reckons with the lack of guideposts, the emptiness and loneliness after a death, and with the active process of filling that space, of making a map where there is none. Trailer here
(BARDO is approximately 80 minutes long and includes an original score by Ahmond)Delicate Fish - An offering of dance to call in an ocean of tenderness. Trailer here.
(Delicate Fish is 30 minutes long with music design by D.L. Frazer)
