Mountain Shouting at OHT
We’ve been following Jennie MaryTai Liu for awhile and we’re looking forward to this one.
Mountain Shouting is a trio of dances made in Virginia, North Carolina and Hong Kong, that deal with longing for our native selves and the spaces we may have inhabited. Unfolding within a designated ceremonial arena, part Thai kickboxing ring and part Church altar, the night is an ancestral revival as much as a rehearsal for death.
Playfully teetering on the edge of narrative, each dance looks in distinct ways at the sensuous aspects of distance and dislocation– the impossibility of foreign words in the mouth, the body as it is desperate and uncomfortable, the sticky shadowiness of memory space.
A journey through epic memory, four people explore a transforming imaginary and physical landscape: from a childhood home in a rural village, to clambering over a prehistoric burial mound, and floating down a draining river.
