Awassa Astrige / Ostrich

Choreography by Asadata Dafora

 

No one blinks as they carefully observe Awassa Astrige/Ostrich strut regally across stage, no matter how many times they have experienced this classic 89-year-old work. A solo artist becomes The Ostrich. A flexed muscle in the arm, a menacing eye movement, a tendon tightening in the foot; all the reasons why the enthralling work has become an audience favorite. Sierra Leone native Asadata Dafora choreographed the majestic work in 1932 that imitates the powerful movements of the ostrich to African drumming music.

Night Run

Choreography by Christopher L. Huggins

 

“Edgy, thrilling, and evocative.” That is how The Berkshire Edge described Night Run by international choreographer Christopher L. Huggins as it unfolded at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2021. Huggins combined modern dance and ballet over Flamenco-influenced guitar and a slow waltz in the work, as he explored the transformation of social interactions when night falls and time seems to become an illusion.
