Today we spotlight...
ANNIE KATSURA ROLLINS
Role: Shadow Artist/Performer
Animal Sign: Yang Metal Monkey 🐒
"Firehorse and Shadow has been a righteous journey, alongside Andrea, through her lineage of incredible women. It has illuminated again the invisible ties that bind and how we can continue to reshape the past as we remake the future for ourselves."
Dance artist Andrea Nann is joined by shadow puppeteer and theatre artist, Annie Katsura Rollins, in this new experiential interactive web performance that collaboratively investigates what binds and holds family members together, and ultimately what frees and heals the family line.
Firehorse and Shadow explores family lineage with a focus on the dualistic yin and yang elements expressed within the bodies, lives and choices of three generations of women. Working against and alongside the hearsay of family stories and Chinese medicine cycles and charts of astrological animal signs, two performers weave together passages of remembering and forgetting, inviting the audience into an intimate reanimation of familial memory.
Firehorse & Shadow was commissioned by CanAsian Dance for its 2020 KickStart program.
The creation of this work was generously supported by the Dance Artist in Residence program at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and by National Ballet of Canada's CreativAction Open Space program.
