Bret Easterling performs 'BRECHT'

June 29th, 2019, 8PM

After 7 years of working closely with renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin at Batsheva Dance Company, Bret Easterling returns to the States to explore his own choreographic voice. Starting with an ambitious evening length solo, Bret will perform amidst a field of microphones while collaborator Maxwell Transue constructs the work's score in real-time, using only the sounds captured during the performance. Seated in the round, the audience will intimately experience the work’s extremely physical and unpredictable nature as Bret seeks authenticity in his movement, punctuated with sincerity, cynicism, and exalted joy.
