BARDO and Delicate Fish
In the stall of winter, two solo pieces, BARDO, a dance theater piece by Lyra Butler-Denman, and Delicate Fish, a dance piece by Jess Evans, are presented alongside and in communication with one another.
To die is a process whose edges are feathered in all directions.
To grieve is to feel love that has nowhere to go.
To heal is to touch with love that which was previously touched by fear.
Somewhere beneath ground, under leaves too wet to stir, there is movement.
A conversation and a conjuring, BARDO embodies the transition states of dying, of grieving, of a relationship moving from the physical plane to existing, maybe (we hope), somewhere else. It reckons with the lack of guideposts, the emptiness and loneliness after a death, and with the active process of filling that space, of making a map where there is none.
An offering of dance to call in an ocean of tenderness.
