Rosanna Gamson/World Wide Sugar Houses

Rosanna Gamson/World Wide: Prelude to Sugar Houses

"The choreography and music are gripping, the company is impressive and the uses of mixed-media are meaningful.”
Los Angeles Times

Presented as part of The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series


Celebrated choreographer Rosanna Gamson devises a live in-theater simulcast duet with performers Kearian Giertz and Kevin Zambrano. The two dancers/singers/actors are all alone together in REDCAT'S theater: generating video, sound, and lighting, marking the space with chalk, and creating an intricate intimate world of shadows and echoes. As a dark prequel to the Hansel and Gretel fairytale, Prelude to Sugar Houses imagines two boys who were lost, or abandoned, or escaped... and never went home again.

The presentation of Sugar Houses was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Production residency funded by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The creation and performances of Sugar Houses are made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs; and by the CalArts Faculty Development Fund.
