About This Show

no common threads… is Gilles Obermayer’s and Laura Flowers’ shared evening performance featuring new work by 2 composers, 3 choreographers, seven dancers and three musicians. Gilles Obermayer, a French musician and composer, has written original music for the project. The first piece he presents, Hudson River, is written for violin, cello, xylophone and drum set. The score has been choreographed by Jeff Moen and is danced by Deanna Bergdorf and Lana Sealy. Luis, another piece by Obermayer, is a solo for Berimbao and spoken text. This is based on the true facts of the killing of street boys in Latin America and the trade of their body parts. Epitaph is a multi-media piece for tape, text, remote controlled tanks, a dancer and Mr. Obermayer on taiko drums. The contextual theme of this piece is the Iraq war and Gilles Obermayer uses his artistic freedom to make a political statement.
