Emily Johnson/Catalyst Dance
Redfern Arts Center
"Niicugni," Yup'ik for "Listen," is a new dance performance by Alaskan-born Emily Johnson housed within a sound/light installation of hand-made fish lanterns. Making things from fish skin is an Alaskan art form. This dance, the second in a trilogy of pieces related to Johnson's Yup'ik heritage, explores issues around displacement of native peoples and the ways in which cultures are divided and linked. Dance Magazine calls her work "simultaneously vulnerable and commanding, mythical and wry."
This performance is co-presented with the Vermont Performance Lab and is funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts.
$20-$13, $5 KSC students
