Choreographer Danielle Agami, former Batsheva Dance Company member, founded the Los Angeles based company Ate9 in 2012. Agami’s work is rooted in the rigorous yet emotionally liberating movement sensibility of Ohad Naharin’s “Gaga,” and explores honest movement and storytelling through this practice. In her new work Calling Glenn, a collaboration with Wilco percussionist Glenn Kotche, nine dancers inhabit an aurally colorful landscape with distinctive humor and visceral virtuosity.

Choreographer Marjani Forté’s SHE WHO: Frida, Mami & Me investigates the life, mythology, and characteristics of Mexican visual artist Frida Kahlo and Nigerian deity Mami Wata. The work spurred a nuanced, multicultural dialogue between Activist Dance Theater CONTRA-TIEMPO and the African American choreographer. In collaboration, the artists traverse the turbulent waters of protest, feminism, resilience, and identity through these earthly and mystic beholders of culture. SHE WHO: Frida, Mami & Me features costume design by David Reynoso and lighting design by Tuce Yasak, and was presented as part of the Ford Theatres’ 2016 summer Signature Series in August 2016.

Far From the Norm

Stream all four works from Far From the Norm on JoyceStream

Streaming: Tuesday, September 22 at 5pm ET through Monday, October 19 at Midnight ET

Based in London, Far From the Norm’s burning scrutiny of public preoccupations, politics, and the contemporary world fuels its work and demands a response. Its aim is to continuously reinvent ways of deconstructing hip-hop and street dance vocabularies through collaboration. As part of our JoyceStream Digital Fall Season, Far From the Norm offers four short films, including a documentary about the troupe's magnetic artistic director Botis Seva. CAN’T KILL US ALL, a collaboration with filmmaker Ben Williams and composer Torben Lars Sylvest, unravels one man’s unrest while navigating the turbulence of two global pandemics; Reach, by director Billy Boyd Cape, explores themes of love, abandonment, and fatherhood through a journey towards independence; and B.R.E.A.T.H.E. is a searing response to the countless deaths of Black people at the hands of the police. The documentary film Botis Seva: Air features an exclusive, rare solo dance performance by Seva.
