Rambler, Worlds Worlds A Part
A co-presentation with Lumberyard Center for Film & Performing Arts
In her latest evening-length work Rambler, Worlds Worlds A Part choreographer Kathy
Westwater extends her exploration, which began over twenty years ago, of pain and the body,
including the pain of others. Here Westwater invites the dance artists in the work to explore
their personal experiences of pain and trauma.
While contemplating if it is possible to fully communicate the experience of one’s own
pain—and its opposite, bliss—or to fully know another’s, the cast of dancers responds to and
celebrates the profound music of post-minimalist composer Julius Eastman. Eastman’s music will be performed live by Joseph Kubera and Adam Tendler. With a special appearance by musician and composer M. Lamar, the work also features performances by dancers Ilona Bito, Thomas F. DeFrantz, Alex Romania, Rakia Seaborn, Paul Singh,
Stacy Lynn Smith, and Westwater. Collaborating artists also include architect Seung Jae Lee as
set designer, Roderick Murray as lighting designer, and Melanie George as dramaturg.
