Production DetailsYoung Gods Reimagined
Young Gods, Reimagined is reference to one of the company’s seminal works, a treatise on age and beauty originally created in 1999 during the company’s residency at ODC Theater. STEAMROLLER re-investigates the work by interviewing former company members to delve into their experiences of the creative process. Choreography from the original work will be reconfigured so former dancers can engage with new dancers cast for the performance. Interview recordings and archival footage are woven throughout the performance to create an immersive experience for the audience.
There will be an onstage conversation with the artists following the performance on Saturday June 17.Steamroller Dance Company
