A Solo River Performance



June 6-8 & 14 -17,  2014

The Green River, Great Barrington MA

Endure explores the fundamental immpermenance of life, and the enduring strength of fragile vessels- human hearts and paper boats. 

It's inspired by water, images from distant lands, and the epic master of Butoh- Kazuo Ohno.  I offer a humble bow to Guru Ammannur Madhava Chakyar, the great old-world master of Kuttiyattam- a 10,000 year-old Sanskrti drama form from my native Kerala, India- whom I was so priviledged to see perform a piece where one actor plays both a man and a woman.  In South East Asia , there is a custom of making ritual offerings for departed ones along a river; sometimes this is done in a

paper boat.
