Ronja Ver‘s evening length piece DEAR AMERICA explores the themes of alien-ness, immigration and freedom, in a complex love affair with the United States post economical collapse.
DEAR AMERICA was created with generous support from the Garage RAW residency program and the seventh annual San Francisco Summer Performance Festival.
Fifth in a series of studies on the poetics of pain. Video by Mark McBeth: a very pregnant version of Faith at the Garage in SF, November 2011. To skip the housekeeping announcements in the beginning, you can start viewing at 1.30.
ART AND LIFE – choreography: Deborah Hay, adaptation: Ronja Ver, 2010
This piece was originally performed with all the trash/recycling/compost that I found at the venue upon arrival, brought on stage either as part of my costume or the set. Musings about this can be found on an old blog post here.
Video of brand new mommy dancing at the Noh Space Theater in San Francisco, this time without trash. Shot by the amazing Bay Area dance chronicler Mark McBeth.
