This week, contributor Camille Bacon-Smith got to sit down with Ronen “Roni” Koresh to discuss Aftershock, the upcoming performance that opens this week. The piece is a follow up to his 1995 entry Culture Shock and a revisiting of Aftershock’s 2015 rendition: “Koresh said the piece will appear much as the company performed it in 2015, but he returned to it with new eyes. ‘It’s like Israel, when I go to visit. All the memories, the smells, the food, the laughter and the joy, the heat, the sense of everything.’
And if you haven’t gotten enough of capturing legacy through dance, the Fabric Workshop and Museum opens a new exhibit celebrating internationally acclaimed movement artist Eiko Otake, bringing “an evolving series of experiments and collaborations that negotiate differences of race, age, culture, ethnicity, religion, discipline, and gender, [and] each project seeks to maximize the potential of the encounter.”
Find out more about that in this week’s roundup—which also features Crushed Earth an audio play from People’s Light and the Academy of Natural Sciences’ new exhibit Life Onto Land: The Devonian.
