WE is an evening-length collaboration between Emily Coates and Emmanuèle Phuon, both former dancers of Mikhail Baryshnikov’s and Yvonne Rainer’s companies. The performance combines storytelling in movement, words and images, taking place both indoors on a theatrical stage and outdoors in selected natural settings. The landscapes serve as a character in the work, reflecting on themes of animism, ecology, and astronomy through the mediums of postmodern dance and Cambodian classical dance. The artists use their memories and shared experiences to provoke the audience, leaving them with a heightened sensitivity to the environment around them. The work is powerful, necessary, and immediate yet primordial at the same time. Emmanuèle Phuon’s work is directed by Vincent Dunoyer and performed by Emmanuèle Phuon and Amelia Dawe Sanders. Emily Coates’ work is directed by Ain Gordon and performed by Charlie Burnham, Emily Coates, and Derek Lucci.

Program A begins outdoors (Phuon) and moves indoors (Coates) Total Run Time: 69 min

Program B starts indoors (Phuon) and ends outdoors (Coates) Total Run Time: 69 min

Kaatsbaan has a no refund policy. Ticket insurance is available upon checkout.
