AS220’s November Dance Residency is Here: Check Out Valerie Green in Succession Nov. 19-21st!
“In a Solo performance of extraordinary charm and intriguing mystery, Valerie Green’s, “Succession” was like looking through a time warped window of centuries-old glass and into one woman’s exploration of her past or alternative realities. “ – Philip W. Sandstrom, New York Theatre Wire
AS220 is proud to host New York based dance artist Valerie Green presenting Succession. Ms. Green has thread together segments from her body of solo work to create a life cycle journey. Succession starts with Ms. Green channeling the fluid movements of a fetus in the amniotic sac. The cyclical journey continues with transformation, aging, and the disruption of order amidst an installation of hundreds of flowers. Succession concludes in a rite of passion with a spiritual burial and a symbolic rebirth. This powerful 48-minute solo work, executed through cunning sensuality, relies on exposing aspects of the archetypal female, all sourced from the deep recesses of the character’s psyche.
