FROM NEW YORK! High Tide is a new show by LAVA about love, velocity, and abstract art. Inspired by Niagara Falls, saturated colors, and the importance of conflict resolution, it features graphically designed acrobatics, intimate partnering, singing, talking and dancing, all live on stage. The six strong women of LAVA will fly through the air into each others’ arms, and gracefully fall apart. Video and visual projections of elemental seduction (sand, water, lava) by visual artist Nancy Brooks Brody provide set, setting and patterns. Sound design by Jody Elff translates the sounds of bodies tumbling into sonic landscapes, and music by The Butchies, Beck and muzak infuse the performance with explosive nuances. High Tide premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in New York in May, 2003. Conceived and Directed by Sarah East Johnson, performed by Natalie Agee, Molly Chanoff, Diana Greiner, Sarah East Johnson and Rebecca Stronger. Co-presented with the Dance Brigade.
