Now in its ninth year of circulating dance companies through American metropolises, SCUBA brings together Elia Mrak from Seattle, Nichole Canuso Dance Company from Philadelphia, Supergroup from Minneapolis, and the city's own NAKA Dance Theater to show off their latest creations in each city. NAKA Dance Theater, which made waves last year with BAILOUT!, a site-specific work on the 2011 tsunami in Japan and the ongoing threat of nuclear disaster, will present another politically charged work, The Anastasio Project. Drawing on the story of the deportation and brutal death of undocumented Mexican immigrant Anastasio Hernandez-Rojas, as well as the death of unarmed African-American Oscar Grant at the Fruitvale BART station, NAKA questions the violence that occurs at all borders and the divisions of race that continue to plague our country. Lest that seem too dark, the others promise the pleasure of pure physicality, a paean to Chopin's preludes, and a theory-driven exploration of the multitasking body.
