EAST RIVER COMMEDIA in association with LEIGH EVANS present QUIET TO DEPARTURE as part of the 4TH ANNUAL undergroundzero festival.

Leigh Evans’ new work, Quiet to Departure, has been selected to premiere at the 4th Annual undergroundzero festival of experimental theater, presented at PS122, July 13-18. Combining Butoh dance, video, and original music by Peter Whitehead, the duet Quiet to Departure explores the illusory nature of form through the shifting perceptions of self and other. Reflection, refraction, disjunction, shadow, and presence reveal our simultaneous transparency and visibility in this journey of self and memory.

Choreographed by Leigh Evans. Performed by Leigh Evans & Megan Nicely. Music by Peter Whitehead. Video by David Rogers & Joel Kurtz. Sculpture by Therese Lahaie. Costume Design by Tiziana Agnello. Lighting Design by Bruce Steinberg.

Leigh Evans, Choreographer at the intersection of dance, visual art, meditation, and theater, Leigh Evans' performance work explores the nature of perception by re-inventing our relationship to viewing the body. Evans' dance theater illuminates the darker aspects of human nature with the beauty of the physical form in rituals of invocation. Her explorations are fed by her fascination with the performance and meditative traditions of Asia. Integral to her work are her extensive travels and studies in the meditative and performance traditions of Asia, including Indian Odissi dance, Butoh, Yoga, Bulgarian singing and North Indian singing.
