©oPirates by Richard Siegal & Multinatural by Arto Lindsay

We’ve been talking about interdisciplinary collaborations – this looks like a good one:

©oPirates is a mutating march for 16 dancers organized internally as characterized by Siegal’s evolving If/Then Methodology. The title takes its inspiration from the duality of cultural synthesis, evoking both Co-operation and Intellectual Property issues. In a series of recreations and distortions, the dancers will “bring home” and further advance the cultural hybridization that resulted from the 18th Century contact between Jesuits and Sierra Tarahumara of Mexico.
