Long Ago: Bodies, Intimately Animated

 

Long Ago Directed and Choreographed by Greg Langner was performed June 10th - 19th 2016, at The Mosaic Lizard Theater in Alhambra, California.

 

Drawing on the intensity of Postmodern dance forms like Butoh, Long Ago embodied the fantastical and fluidly expressive nature of cartoon animation. Long Ago brings to life those characteristics of consciousness that are most often bound socially, and liberated creatively; it unhinges preconceptions about the separation between human and animated forms, rejecting restrictive conceptions about the use of space and time, body and expression.
