REFUGEE – a meditation on the frailty and resilience of the human spirit

February 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10 – $20

Directed by Joan Laage/Kogut Butoh in collaboration with Kaoru Okumura & Helen Thorsen (butoh), Randy Shay (piano) & Aaron Harmonson (bass).

A world in chaos, multitudes of people displaced, frozen in place or constantly moving. Refugee is the latest in Joan’s body of work inspired by the aftermath of war and the urge to find a safer, saner place to live. Earlier works are The Suitcases Project (Snoqualmie Depot and Issaquah Depot), Stations (solo), Black Angels (Dappin’ Butoh Troupe) and Nothing Lasts But Memory (solo). All the travel journeys especially in Europe over many years, the waiting in stations – train, ship, air. Where have all these travelers come from and where are they going and even more so – why?
