Base Occasional No. 4: Ama, The Diver
January 12, 2024 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
After a four-year hiatus, Base is delighted to announce the return of the Base Occasional, a periodic platform for new work in experimental dance and performance. Base Occasional No. 4, Ama, the Diver, features acclaimed artists Lori Goldston, Katiana Gonçales Rangel and Jim Fletcher.
Lori Goldston, renowned Seattle musician and cellist, plays an original live score for Ama, the Diver, which is directed and performed by New York-based theater artists Jim Fletcher (The Wooster Group, New York City Players) and Katiana Gonçales Rangel. These three have collaborated previously on a production of Sarah Kane’s Blasted, which ran in 2021 at PS21 in Chatham, New York.
This production marks a return to Base for all three artists: In 2019, Lori presented a series of live-scored silent films, including Salome, by Charles Bryant and Alia Nazimova, and Theodore Dreyer’s Joan of Arc. Jim performed in Base Co-Founder Dayna Hanson’s 28 problems in Base’s first public performance ever, and Katiana performed her solo work, “Suspended,” as part of Base’s 12 Minutes Max
Ama, the Diver was developed as part of Nalanda West artistic residency in Seattle, WA.
