Life’s Only Constant 

Wednesday, Feb 29 2012
Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was something we often turned to as we entered new stages in life. However, we realize things don’t always work as Dr. Seuss said they would -- the bitter reality being that life is not always 2-D psychedelic talking-fish wonderful. The next stop in understanding how to deal with change is this.placed. Created by Nina Haft & Company and Facing East Dance & Music, the dance piece is inspired by places as well as what the body remembers. It deals with the similar idea of finding comfort when we must leave home, however that’s defined -- though Sue Li Jue’s choreography points toward subjects far more intense than what most of us know, such as orphans from China and sweatshop workers. This.placed illustrates how we react to ourselves, and ultimately sensations and feelings that only the body knows. The dance piece will also feature choreography from Nina Haft, which are based on the work of flash fiction author Britta Austin.
