Fast Forward Curated by Sangeeta Yesley
About The show
Fast Forward provides opportunities for choreographers working in all dance forms to workshop 25 – 35 min pieces on a shared bill curated around a theme.
In July 2017, Fast Forward’s theme is ‘‘Special Relation’’ with The Red lines AND Aleah Black.
The Red lines – Performing “Where the sea pours into the stars” – Choreography by Andrew Garcia & Natalie Deryn Johnson
Where the Sea Pours into The Stars is based on a short work of prose by Albert Andrew Garcia. Its is about the love between two unstoppable forces in nature and the attraction that keeps then tethered to each other.
ALEAH BLACK – Performing “Mother Asylum” – Choreography by Aleah Black
Mother Asylum is a brand new puppet dance opera. You could watch it as a physical manifestation of the voyage through identity, race, and, history; the journey towards understanding your place in the human web. But that would be mostly wrong. It’s 30 minutes of chicken, oranges, dancing, puppets, bad poetry, and a big blue lady. It’s 30 minutes of confusion and questions I don’t have the answer to. It’s 30 minutes of entertainment that will make you feel something. It’s more suitable for children (and non-serious adults). It’s 100% earnest and 6% logical and you should come if you can (because art is still legal)!
“Mother Asylum! Here she comes across the water! A ship destined for the new land! Resist! Rejoice!”
