An intimate, site-specific dance theater production buried in the guts of an abandoned pool on Governors Island's South Battery, contemplating obedience, ritual and the ritual body.
Choreographer and Director Danielle Russo creates magnified, immersive environments that feed off sensory stimulation and its awakening of the familiar. These worlds are unapologetically vulnerable; rigor and nuance are handled with equal care in a focused and honest physicality. Set Designer Joanna DeFelice will be flooding the deep end of the pool with soil, mulch, moss and other earthy matter.
Salome... is a two-part project in collaboration with Filmmaker Luke Ohlson. In addition to its live public performances, time spent on site will be documented into a full-length film for screening and projection mapping into vacant pool spaces.
