what remains...memory, and the insatiable longing to live
Death Posture presents FLOOD, a new butoh performance embracing the terror, hunger and love surging within the rising waters. Dancer Vanessa Skantze lived in New Orleans for over a decade. Less than a year after her arrival in Seattle, Katrina fell upon the Gulf Coast. FLOOD journeys through invocations of the spirit of the land and the city of New Orleans with all her revelry and anguish, as well as imagery drawn from the catastrophe of the storm and the wrenching loss and devastation in its wake.
