“The collaboration between Agami and Kotche produc[es] a stunning and intelligent evening-long work.” —Bachtrack
Ate9 is rooted in the rigorous yet emotionally liberating movement sensibility “Gaga,” originated by Batsheva Dance Company founder Ohad Naharin. Danielle Agami worked with Batsheva for 10 years before founding Los Angeles–based Ate9, injecting a distinctive sense of humor and visceral virtuosity into her choreography. Nine dancers inhabit Wilco percussionist Glenn Kotche’s aurally colorful soundscape in this full-length work of physical and live rhythmic precision. With live music by Glenn Kotche.
