Overground Physical Theatre Presents Dance Drama X-STREAM Tonight


Choreographer/writer Antonia Katrandjieva presents her Overground Physical Theatre Company in X-Stream, which received its world premiere last April, presented by BAM at the Fisher Theater. The Bulgarian choreographer/writer Katrandjieva deftly follows nine characters living on The Edge of uncertainty. They are challenged to co-exist in a muted world, deprived temporarily of sensory perception, and are required to "exit, extract, excavate, expand, and exhale" in order to reset their natural balance. Katrandjieva's colleagues for film, visuals, costumes, and music include three-time Emmy winner Kalin Ivanov, video artist and filmmaker.

The international aspect of the ensemble adds to the fascination - 9 performers, 9 native tongues, 9 dimensions, 9 lives unfolding under "X-treme" circumstances. Working as a unit, in a spirit of joy and exploration, the artists have selected their favorite toys - an orange doll from Slovakia, a wolf from Russia, a teddy bear from Spain, a monkey and tower from Italy, a knit doll from Minnesota, a memory from Tibet, a coloring kit from Japan, and a toy house from Greece - a true celebration of colors, memories, intimate moments, and appreciation of our mutual humanness.
