About This Program

Dustin O’Halloran & Fukiko Takase: 1 0 0 1

“Slow-burning, deeply resonant… a stirring potency. – Clash Magazine on the music of Dustin O’Halloran

“The night's star… A diabolo of a dancer.” – Evening Standard on Fukiko Takase in Wayne McGregor’s Autobiography

Award winning composer and pianist Dustin O’Halloran (Marie Antoinette, Lion, Transparent) whose “sublime” and “enveloping” (DIS) music creates “altered states” (Mojo) teams with choreographer and Company Wayne McGregor member Fukiko Takase to explore ideas of technology, humanity and mind-body dualism in a new electronics-forward existentialist performance 1 0 0 1. As we approach the age of AI, the collaborators ask: how will a new form of consciousness manifest inside a body? What will happen to our soul?

Mike Lewis & Eva Mohn

With light and sound designer Søren Knud Christiansen and performer Sarah Baumert

"A rising star if there ever was one—a choreographer of talent, wit and understated intellectual elegance." – Dance View Times on Eva Mohn

“Lewis’s dry, metallic tone on alto and tenor and the free melodic logic of his improvisations recalls the playing of Ornette Coleman…as well as the fragmentation of mid-sixties Sonny Rollins, the quizzical assertions of the great altoist John Tchicai, and even the visionary gospel rhapsodies of Albert Ayler. Lewis’s solos, digging from melody to wail, moving from a breathy, atonal whisper to a deep, swinging groove, have a vulnerable, confessional air.” – The New Yorker

Minneapolis-based composer, saxophone player and multi-instrumentalist savant Mike Lewis (Andrew Bird, Bon Iver, Happy Apple) and internationally acclaimed performer, locally awarded Sage Artist and City Pages’ “best dancer” 2012 Eva Mohn (Cullberg Ballet, Johannes Wieland Dance, TU Dance) come together to explore the alchemy of their crafts in an new composition about chance, daily mystery and meaning. Joined by sound and light designer Søren Knud Christiansen (Royal Danish Theatre, Edhem Jesenkovic, Recoil Performance Group) and performer Sarah Baumert (Body Cartography Project, Xavier LeRoy, ARENA Dances), this courageous Minneapolis-Stockholm exchange promises audiences a singular experience of intimate gesture and analogue connectivity.
