Karole Armitage's You Took a Part of Me

Apr 12 Through Apr 13 | Fri | 7:30 pm | $25 and up
View Website

You Took a Part of Me is a wired dance production with choreography by "punk ballerina" Karole Armitage for her five-member dance company Armitage Gone! Dance. Loosely based on the 15th-century noh play Nonomiya, it explores erotic entanglement, unresolved attachments and the search for harmony, all of which are hallmarks of noh drama. Set to live music by Reiko Yamada and Yuki Isami, the show embraces new technologies created by MIT Media Lab designers. The lead role, by Armitage's longtime collaborator Megumi Eda, highlights sinuous, seductive movement executed with ferocious intensity in a dream-like state.
