In CRANE, eight women share the stage with live foliage and video projection in a performance witnessed in-the-round. Moving in configurations ranging from groups of two to clusters of eight, sometimes wearing high heels, the result is a strikingly odd dance that becomes sensual, comical, delicate, and volatile throughout its duration. Choreographed by Artistic Director Amy Leona Havin in collaboration with company members Lyndsey Gray Parsons, Heather Hindes, Jillian Hobbs, Briley Jozwiak, Lena Traenkenschuh, Carly Nicole Ostergaard, and Catherine ‘Caty’ Raupp, the dancers begin with a vulnerable 30-minute pre-performance durational act in which they alternate lounging in dim lighting and striding towards each other with arms of flora. The projection mapping by Joseph Wells and video by Tomás Alfredo Valladares sets CRANE in a kaleidoscope of natural imagery, forming an intimate and ambient stage atmosphere from which the dancers do not exit. In various states of dress, the women lean and fall according to the momentum created by an acute awareness of their bodies and internal instincts. Having thoroughly researched Common Cranes over a 14-month rehearsal period with the help of dramaturge Rachel Levens, the dancers execute migratory behaviors—specifically those of cranes which flock annually North to Israel’s Hula Valley— through winding choreography and task-oriented movement scores. In a flurry of legs, hands, hair, and breath, each woman demonstrates what it is to be one amongst the flock.

"The Muse fell from the sky one night and landed in the spaces between our heart beats. She instantly took a liking to the rhythm in our chests, and her sweet melody joined the pulse. One of us picked up father bass, and thumped it’s belly in response. The other picked up father mandolin, and plucked its ribs. Mother guitar and sister flute could not resist being a part of such sweet merriment and soon joined in. So we opened our hearts and let sweet harmony roll off of our tongues. In unison our voices shot out into the deep of night and a star fell from the heavens; the magic spark! Mamuse is born" We are also doing back flips because we get to share this very special evening and this stage with one of our favorite people on planet Earth, Claudia Cuentas!! Claudia is a song catcher originally from Peru now gracing Portland with her brilliant spirit and powerful voice. Her songs are born from an ancient now, calling us both forward and backward in time until we find ourselves dancing happily in the present. She has been likened to Mercedez Sosa, for the deep resilient, uplifting, spirit she brings into her voice and the world. Be prepared to be moved!
