Artist Takeover 5/23: Rosanna Gamson / World Wide

Past event

About

While we work to schedule a new date for the world premiere of Rosanna Gamson/World Wide’s “Sugar Houses,” we were excited to have RGWW take over our social media channels on Saturday, May 23 to share sneak peeks from the piece and behind-the-scenes glimpses at its creation. Cleverly pulling a deconstructed narrative from Hansel & Gretel and jumpscares from horror movies, Sugar Houses by celebrated choreographer Rosanna Gamson continues her kinetic investigation of ferocious and virtuosic physicality, evoking the grotesquery and violence of fairy tales and the primal bond of siblings.

SOUND ON: Hear a sample of the show’s original score recorded in isolation from the performers’ homes and mixed by sonic artist @simongweenbug. Sugar Houses by @rgww_dance exposes the dark heart of “Hansel and Gretel” through the devices and structure of the horror genre. The show will premiere @calartsredcat once RGWW emerges from these nasty old woods. With special thanks to composer @krzyzanowski_music and vocal coach @fahad.siadat. #rgww #REDCAT #calartsredcat #REDCATondemand #ladance #losangeles #soundscore #abelton #sounddesign #sugarhouses #sugarhouse #rosannagamson #timetosing #singers #dancetheatre #rehearsal #inaction #playtime #rehearsalfootage #DCA #NEFA #CalArts @simongweenbug @malibuchoo @climbintine @kearian @krzyzanowski_music @riccoross @dee_on @kaylaannjo @paige.omara @emiramont @calartsredcat @notrosey @sweet.lil.gretel @xxbadbitchwitchxx @abandonthekidsjk @mywife.overeverything @toohottohansel @tweettweetimthetreat @fahad.siadat @rgww_dance @culture_la @calartsdance @calarts @lacountyarts

The compact show design for @rgww_dance Sugar Houses was developed and workshopped with Tony Shayne during a National Dance Project Technical Residency at @calartsredcat. Here @paige.omara demonstrates how it all travels in a suitcase about the size of… an oven. Sugar Houses is a dance theater work that takes on the dark themes of the Brothers Grimm’s “Hansel and Gretel” to expose hidden histories. #rgww #REDCAT #calartsredcat #REDCATondemand #ladance #showinabox #losangeles #tech #lighting #lightingdesign #simplethings #timelapse #bedroomselfie #pelicancase #easytravel #DCA #NEFA #CalArts

See how @simongweenbug, the 7th @rgww_dance #SugarHouses cast member, composes live during each performance; his filtered and layered sound score nods to our continual rediscovering/disremembering/re-remembering/mis-remembering of our collective stories. Sugar Houses, a dance theater retelling of Hansel and Gretel, will have its world premiere at @calartsredcat. #rgww #REDCAT #calartsredcat #REDCATondemand #ladance #sounddesign #ableton #liveedit #learnsomethingnew #danceinla #sonicartist #sounddesigner #abletonlive #edit #DCA #NEFA #CalArts @notrosey @rgww_dance @simongweenbug @culture_la @calartsdance @calarts @lacountyarts
