Event description

Description

Skeleton Flower is a performance that combines rich imagery, live music and song, solo dance and storytelling ritual. This new performance is a semi-autobiographical exploration of a creative person’s struggle with identity, depression and the awakening of personal power. Director Haruko Crow Nishimura draws on her own difficult and at times violent upbringing which led to major breakdowns and years of depression. The work explores how, through creativity, she was able to not only survive, but also share her imagination with others, and transform herself in the process. In Skeleton Flower, Nishimura’s personal story is melded together with three fairy tales in which female protagonists overcame great opposition by putting their creative desires into action. A work in progress version of Skeleton Flower was performed at the Spotlight USA Festival in Plovdiv, Bulgaria presented by American Dance Abroad and the world premiere will take place in the 2018-19 Season in Seattle.
