THE FALL '01 is a dance work being developed for a world tour. It is a work in which the horror of 9/11 and Guantanamo frame devastating scenes from the Iraq and Afghan wars. It is a story not literal, but starkly realistic, incorporating montage scenes from 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq and the torture gulag into a mixed-media performance driven by deeply dramatic, corporeal theatre.
THE FALL '01 is not an anti-war poster piece, but rather an in-depth, artistic study in unthinkable agitation propaganda and the dehumanization of war and torture, marking perhaps an empire at the precipice of its fall" The piece is the work of Agnieszka Laska and Luis Arreguin to a score by composer Jack Gabel with image montages by Uehara Takafumi. Dancing is performed by the Agnieszka Laska Dancers and Las Pleyades Danza Contemporanea.
