Double Bill @ Studio 36 on December 20, 2014

Studio 36 concludes this year’s program of events with a double bill: "Strand" and "Penumbra."

"Strand" is a powerful solo dance piece performed by Joan Laage of Kogut Butoh, with live music by Studio 36 regular Dmitry Artamanov. "Strand" debuted in Seattle earlier this month and will be one of the works Laage will perform on a tour of Europe in 2015.

Joan Laage has been a key figure in the Seattle performance community since 1991. She is a founder of the DAIPAN Butoh Collective and has performed widely in the US, Europe, and Japan, where she trained with Yoko Ashikawa and Kazuo Ohno.

The evening will open with an encore performance of "Penumbra" (first performed for the December 6 Gallery Walk), a celebration of winter solstice by Camille Hildebrandt, Amy Priest, and Aimee Kelley, with a live electronic soundscape by David Noble.

Door opens at 6:30. Performances begin at 7:00 pm. $10 suggested donation. All are welcome.
