Centered on movement, story, and sound, and housed within a light/sound installation of handmade, functional fish-skin lanterns, Niicugni equates the land we live on with the cells that comprise our bodies. During her residency Johnson will work on this piece with fellow performer Aretha Aoki, then present this work-in-progress showing. The sound is composed and performed by multi-instrumentalist James Everest and violinist/electronic musician Bethany Lacktorin. Lighting design by Heidi Eckwall.
"Fresh and fierce, evocative and disciplined." -Dance Magazine
