Inspired by the experience of acculturation to a new home and characterized by disorientation and a pervasive undercurrent of aggression, STRANGE PLANET is a dance theatre work that disperses choreographic power to the performers, who are able to direct the work and each other from within the performance. As the past, present and future comingle, the six performers struggle to navigate a world disintegrating around them, trying to remember what must happen, recognize what has already happened, and be ready for what has never happened before.
STRANGE PLANET is performed by the Jordan Fuchs Company, a collaborative, project-based dance company directed and instigated by Jordan Fuchs, assistant professor of dance at Texas Womans University. The company seeks to extend the expressive possibilities of live performance through explorations of form and formlessness, physical relationships at close-quarters, and through experiments with staging and technology.
