RETURN TO ABSENCE

Arcane Collective’s latest production, Return to Absence inhabits the rich and peculiar realm of Samuel Beckett’s trilogy novel Molloy, Malone Dies, and the Unnamable. Presenting a non-linear storytelling, Return to Absence embodies, in it’s own way, the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to Beckett’s world, portraying the human condition often at the end of its tether.

To quote Beckett, “Dance first. Think Later. It’s the natural order”.

 

COLD DREAM COLOUR

Director -Morleigh Steinberg
Choreography -Steinberg, Oguri
Original Music -The Edge and Paul Chavez

A haunting journey through the surreal and powerful imagery of the paintings of Louis le Brocquy, Ireland’s foremost 20th century artist. This visually spectacular dance celebrates the physical and emotional complexities of humanity.

“A virtuoso performance…a striking visual success.” Los Angeles Times

 

OGURI – Solo Work

Emphasizing the unpredictable and spontaneous, Oguri pulls the audience into uncharted territory, holding them spellbound with his fierce adeptness and agility.

“Astonishing in its many guises, his visage is simultaneously old and young, ecstatic and empty…where a surprised look becomes a world of wisdom. This is the face of Oguri, butoh master and L.A. jewel.” Los Angeles Times

_________________________________________

I first became aware of Dan while teaching at USC. Bob Mintzer had called and was raving about this guy Dan who had applied for graduate studies. Upon first hearing some of his music, I knew he was special. Things ultimately worked out, and Dan was able to attend school.  It was not only good for him, but also for all of our students as I soon found out that he was not only a great musician but also a great mentor as well.

Fast forward to present time when Dan called and asked me if I would craft liner notes for the CD. I did not hesitate for one moment, because before I had even listened to the recording, I knew it would not be a chore. Dan is a great pianist, and upon listening, the first word that comes to mind is clarity. He has a beautiful touch, and it seems as if there are no wasted notes. Everything has its purpose. It’s the same with his composition… Nothing ever seems out of place, everything is there for a reason. This is not background music by any means. Yet, there is a certain atmosphere about the recording… one of a calm, transportive nature. Dan’s music demands your attention without beating you over the head or intimidating you. It’ ever so subtly gets under your skin, and before long, you will find yourself dropping everything and giving it the full, undivided attention, which it deserves.

Hats off to Dan Szabo for making a beautiful, honest and creative musical statement.

Alan Pasqua
