Founded upon dramatic, life-changing events encountered as a child in Iran, Emory Dance faculty member George Staib and his company embark on their most political and socially driven work to date.
fence is a journey into a messy world of power struggles and dismissed histories. It is an examination of how “otherness” can rob our power or become its source. Staib’s intensely physical movement vocabulary will bond with traditional Iranian dance, exploring unrest felt personally and globally. Through rich and compelling collaborations with musicians; composers; and scenic, lighting and digital designers, audiences become woven into the work, giving shape to the dialogue: what takes your power and what gives you power.
