ATLAS explores the synthetic and artificial world we create around ourselves and that sits heavily on all our shoulders. Communication and interaction is constantly being manipulated or skewed, this piece asks, how can we be accurately seen and acknowledged when we continually distort who we are and how we exist.
Albert Andrew is the founder of The Red Lines, a production company based in Brooklyn, NY.
Coffee Cup Conundrum
Featuring/Collaborators Sid Huang
A couple, meets, flirts and dances amidst plastic waste-plastic bottles, coffee cup lids and plastic bags- oblivious to it, until it starts cramping their style. Dancing to the crooning of Frank Sinatra and other soothing sounds, belies the danger they are in. They have become blind to the reality that the World is dying in a plastic wasteland.
Anne Bassen hails from Washington, DC where she began her choreographic career, winning many awards and grants in the region. She creates work that values emotional expression over pure movement. She is an improviser in theater, movement and music and is currently teaching improv theater in NYC and Europe. Her work often ironically comments on political, environmental, and social issues.
