These performances of Remembering Again were supported in part by a generous grant from the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
REMEMBERING AGAIN: A piece that explores memories and how they are stored in our body, in our cells, in our ancestral history. How memory is passed on, altered, distorted, repeated, and what remain imprinted in the self.
Christine Germain & Dancers produces original works of physical theatre specializing in exposing and exploring human rights inequities. Founded in 2007, the company uses somatics as a practice/process of inquiry to heighten social and environmental awareness. The performance actions are denunciations, manifestoes, political statements and questions. Each performance is an extension of the performers’ practice and rehearsal into the public sphere. A common theme running through all company’s creative work is “otherness” and the ways we deal with the foreign, the unfamiliar, and how the novel yields particular consequences.
