QUARTETTO FANTASTICO

Search the Darkness
by Rumi

Sit with your friends; don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.

Surge like an ocean,
don’t scatter yourself like a storm.

Life’s water flows from darkness.
Search the darkness don’t run from it.

Night travelers are full of light,
and you are, too; don’t leave this companionship.

Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish,
don’t slip into the dirt like quick silver.

The moon appears for the night travelers,
be watchful when the moon is full.

(translated by Kabir Helminski)

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
