Robyn Orlin: And so you see...
AND SO YOU SEE... OUR HONOURABLE BLUE SKY AND EVER ENDURING SUN... CAN ONLY BE CONSUMED SLICE BY SLICE... NEW YORK CITY PREMIERE Co-presented with Crossing The Line (FIAF)
In her New York City premiere, co-presented by French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing The Line Festival, famed South African choreographer Robyn Orlin will present the season’s opening main stage performance, September 22-24. The piece And so you see… our honorable blue sky and ever enduring sun… can only be consumed slice by slice… features Johannesburg-born actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, and performance artist Albert Ibokwe Khoza in a powerful solo performance. The work was created in response to South Africa’s recent celebration of 20 years of freedom and contains Orlin’s trademark mix of forms, expressions and genre. Orlin describes the performance as “… an ironical playful body, caught between sin, transformation, decay and brilliance, using the ‘seven deadly sins’, on a journey through a ‘requiem to humanity’ with the third world still on stage and the first world paying to be part of the show…” Featuring costume design by Marianne Fassler and lighting by Laïs Foulc.
“… An ironical playful body, caught between sin, transformation, decay and brilliance, uses the ‘seven deadly sins’, on a journey through a ‘requiem to humanity’ with the third world still on stage and the first world paying to be part of the show’
…Think of this piece as a ‘requiem to humanity.’”
