Degenerate Art Ensemble: Skeleton Flower (TWO NIGHTS!)
Wednesday, October 18 & Thursday, October 19 @ 8:00PM

Degenerate Art Ensemble’s Skeleton Flower is an immersive performance that combines rich imagery, live music and song, visceral solo dance, and storytelling ritual. The work will be performed in a rare duo performance by the company’s two co-artistic directors, dancer Haruko Crow Nishimura and musician/composer Joshua Kohl, over two nights at the Poppy.

Haruko Crow Nishimura – dance, voice
Joshua Kohl – guitar, electronics

Degenerate Art Ensemble has shown their work throughout the U.S. and Europe known for their large-scale dance and theater projects, concerts, site-transforming spectacles, and ongoing public experimentation. Recent highlights of the group’s work include a major exhibition at the Frye Art Museum in 2011, a commission by director Robert Wilson to interpret his opera Einstein on the Beach in 2012, and a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet in 2013. In 2012, Degenerate Art Ensemble was commissioned by the city of Seattle to create a massive site-specific work, titled Underbelly, in collaboration with Olson Kundig Architects to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair. The group’s most recent project, Predator Songstress, premiered at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco in 2015.
