Dan Safer, a downtown maverick and the Artistic Director of Witness Relocation returns to the stage as a performer in his own work in Surveys the Prairie of Your Room, a duet co-created and performed with leading WR company member Ae Andreas. The work, titled after a David Bowie lyric, has been developed in a two-year process of workshops and ponders on things that could go in any number of directions and you’re not quite sure which one is right. Things that happen in liminal spaces. ASMR recordings. Trying to be happy when everything has gone to hell. Dancing.
Features original music by the OBIE Award-winning composer and longtime WR collaborator Heather Christian.
Director/Choreographer: Dan Safer
