BroadwayWorld-Austin is pleased to share these production photos from the World Premiere production of Still Now, a new play by Katie Bender. Still Now is produced by Shrewd Productions.

Annie is a dancer, strong as hell and driven. After witnessing the fall of the twin towers, Annie heads to Japan to study Butoh, looking for a dance form that expresses the destruction she can't comprehend. Ten years later, Annie is diagnosed with stage four cancer and returns to Butoh to prepare for her final dance. Written by Katie Bender and staged in collaboration with celebrated director Rudy Ramirez and choreographer Abel Coelho, Still Now confronts us with the accelerated motion of a woman learning and losing her body, accompanied by the doctors, teachers, friends and lovers that become her partners in movement, to ask the question: what can our bodies teach us that our minds cannot fathom?

Directed by Rudy Ramirez, winner of three B. Iden Payne Awards for Outstanding Direction, and by choreographer Abel Coelho, whose work has been throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. Still Now was recently honored by inclusion on the Kilroy List, the first annual industry survey of excellent new plays by female playwrights, and was a nominee for the David Mark Cohen New Play Award. Still Now opens on September 12th at City Theatre, running through October 4th.

Still Now features the cast of Amelia Turner, Joseph Garlock, Jonathan Itchon, Cara Spradling, Jennifer Coy, Shannon Grounds, Kt Shorb, Jennifer Davis, Elaine Dove and Melissa Trevino with lighting design by Megan Reilly, set design by Ann Marie Gordon, costumes by Jennifer Davis, and projection design by Patrick Lord.

Still Now was developed with the generous assistance of the New Harmony Project.
