Dan Safer, a downtown maverick and the artistic director of Witness Relocation, returns to the stage as a lead performer in his work Surveys the Prairie of Your Room, a duet cocreated and performed with leading WR company member Ae Andreas, featuring original music by Obie Award-winning composer and longtime company collaborator Heather Christian. Titled after a David Bowie lyric, the work is composed as an uninterrupted, virtuosic movement sequence. Accompanied by Christian's dreamy score and the original text by playwright Kate Scelsa (Everyone's Fine With Virginia Woolf) — delivered in the electrifying voice of Grace McLean — this highly kinetic and physically demanding piece is an exhilarating and healing meditation for the uncertain times.
Presented as part of 2019 LaMaMa Moves! Festival.
