Event description

Description

Returning to stage after eight years of absence as a performer, Minh Tran (and Company) is creating a new work entitled, Anicca/Impermanence, which will premiere on February 21-24, 2019 at Reed College. This work explores the farewell ritual to departed loved ones as inspired by Tran’s recent loss of his parents.

Tran’s work is particularly noted for its fusion of traditional Asian techniques and contemporary Western dance, underscored by an unwavering commitment to breaking down cultural and racial barriers. The main theme of his work is the value of diversity, which gives meaning to the content of his choreography. The Oregonian praised Tran for having, “…a style that is an idiosyncratic fusion of traditional Chinese opera movement and Western postmodern dance,” and theSeattle Post-Intelligencer raved, “…both precise and fast-flowing, Tran is blessed with confident, complex inner musical rhythms.”

The program will be danced by Tran’s 7-member Portland-based company: Suzanne Chi, Margretta Hansen, Shaun Keylock, Carla Mann, Andrés Peraza-Aguillón, Rachel Slater, and himself. Drawing from the spiritual world of Southeast Asia, the 49-minute performance without intermission features seven sections, of seven minutes each, by seven dancers, to follow the Buddhist tradition on the 49th day after death.

Set & lighting design is provided by Reed Associate Professor of Theatre Peter Ksander, stage projection design by Marilys Ernst, original sound score design by Heather Perkins, and costume design by Sandy Hedgepeth.

Anicca / Impermanence is presented by Reed College Dance Department, sponsored by Ronni Lacroute, Darci & Charlie Swindells, and funding support in part by Regional Arts & Culture Council.
