With choreography and direction by Tiffany Mills; video by award-winning Cuban-born filmmaker Ela Troyano; and music by internationally acclaimed Japanese composer Ikue Mori, these three diverse female artists blend their individual media and backgrounds, live and improvised in performance. Mills, Mori and Troyano chart a journey of six dancers in three consecutive duets. The artists draw inspiration for these duets from the vast power and emotional resonance of a storm as it explodes upon the multitudes: accumulation, landfall, breach.
“LandFall holds the eye…continuing the evening’s contact improvisation aesthetic but deepening it with unstated, moody emotions.”
—New York Times
