Witness Relocation "Haggaddah," NYC, 27 Mar, 2009

publicity photoWitness Relocation (witnessrelocation.org), whom
Performing Arts Journal dubbed "a dance-theater anarchist's
utopia," will perform "Haggaddah," a work based on the
Passover Seder, March 19 to 29 in La MaMa's Annex Theater.
The project will link post-modern dance, narrative
storytelling, rock concerts, lectures, and dramatic scenes
into a vibrant artistic rendering of one of the world's most
ancient holidays, presenting the story in a way that anyone
from any culture can get inside it.

Audiences will be seated at a 50 foot long table, with the
show happening on and around it. The traditional Seder is a
ritual telling of the Exodus from Egypt on an intimate
scale. This show examines the ritual in a large,
post-modern context. There will be a spectacle combining
dance, theater, music and design to immerse the audience in
an intense re-envisioning of both the story and the act of
coming together to tell it.

March 19 to 29
La MaMa E.T.C. (Annex Theater), 74A East Fourth Street
Presented by La MaMa E.T.C.
Th-Sat at 7:30 pm; Sun at 2:30 pm
$25/tdf, Box office (212) 475-7710, www.lamama.org
