These Are the Ones We Fell Among


“A captivating, haunting, and bizarre dreamscape – like Dr. Seuss meets David Lynch on the last days of a bankrupt circus.” — choreographer Sheldon B. Smith, Chair, Mills College Dance Department

These Are the Ones We Fell Among is an hour-long duet created by award-winning interdisciplinary artist Ann Carlson, whose poignant sense of humor, coupled with a nod to the absurd, has created a dreamscape inspired by the movements, myths, and metaphors of our non-human cousins – ranging from the most endangered marine mammal, the vaquita, to the largest land mammal, the elephant.

Performed by Shinichi Iova-Koga and Dana Iova-Koga of USA/Swiss-based experimental dance and theater company inkBoat, These Are the Ones We Fell Among juxtaposes elegance in the face of extinction, while looking for humor and grace amid the predicament of collective loss on our planet.

Please join us after the Oct 8 performance for a post-show discussion with the artists.
