John Jasperse Company
Mar 18–19, 2005
This intriguing new work by one of the most acclaimed young American choreographers challenges how we focus our perceptions and hopes. John Jasperse returns to the MCA with a layered and suggestive dance that shifts between chaos and order, set amidst a massive floating sculpture by Chicago based architect Ammar Eloueini and includes music by Jonathan Bepler. Using California as a state of mind defined by both promise and crisis—the gold rush and the dot-com bust; the land of plenty and of fault lines—he delves into what it means when things go wrong, and when what we expect to happen, doesn’t.
