"Gamson has a purpose beyond herself, a choreographic design that supports her humanistic worldview.” —LA Weekly
Virtuosic, intimate and volatile dancing is at the center of acclaimed choreographer Rosanna Gamson’s dance-theater work Still/Restless, which continues her kinetic investigation of dream states and the neuroscience and history of dreaming. Restless builds on her acclaimed Still, seen at REDCAT’s 2014 NOW Festival. Performed by eight dancers, Still/Restless is rich with tender and violent movement, explosive athleticism and stunning moments of stillness. The action is set against an eclectic sonic landscape ranging from17th-century French court composer Marin Marais, to new world post-rock band instrumentals.
