Madam in Eden, I’m Adam (part one: the final hour) (2005)

Choreography: Marianne M. Kim, Rodney Mason
Composer: LeRoy Bach
Video: Christina Choe

 Madam in Eden, I’m Adam (part one: the final hour) - This dance theatre work collides the imagistic dance of Japanese Butoh and American hip-hop/break dancing as well as innovative video and music.  All the elements focus on the concept of de-evolution. The work puts into question the future of the human race in the 21st century by creating a movement based creation/destruction myth. It is a myth of creatures formed from the seeds of fear, panic, and denial.  How do we construct this new reality? How do we exist inside of it? are some of the questions that are investigated.
