Your Sister Turns Into a Lion @ ODC

Your Sister Turns Into a Lion is a new, evening-length narrative dance piece about two sisters and what happens when one of them turns into a lion. Built on spoken text devised by the cast, the show is a hybrid of real memories and surreal fiction, a story told in acrobatic phone calls to next of kin, an interrogation presided over by a conductor, the unabashed savagery of beasts, and the tender folding of maps. Created in collaboration with Oakland-based composer Jordan Glenn and five dancers, four musicians, and a classically trained vocalist.

Choreography & Direction: Megan Kurashige & Shannon Kurashige
Cast: Sonja Dale, Megan Kurashige, Shannon Kurashige, Chelsea Reichert, Sarah Dionne Woods-LaDue
Composer: Jordan Glenn
Vocalist: Ina Woods
Lighting: Allen Willner
Costumes: Emily Kurashige

Roulette, Brooklyn NY

Glorious Ravage is a panoramic free jazz song cycle by San Francisco Bay Area bassist and composer Lisa Mezzacappa, that features a large ensemble of stellar California improvisers performing with films created by Bay Area moving image artists Janis Crystal LipzinKathleen QuillianAlfonso Alvarez and Konrad Steiner. The program takes as its inspiration the adventures and writings of lady explorers of the 19th century who trekked to the wildest parts of the earth, to escape, to discover, and to lose themselves.

Glorious Ravage premiered in fall 2015, in Northern and Southern California – at REDCAT as part of the Angel City Jazz Festival in Los Angeles, CA, at UC Irvine and in San Francisco at Brava Theater Center. It makes its East Coast premiere at Roulette in Brooklyn this October 12.
