AVARICE [;av-er-is]; -- insatiable greed for riches;
inordinate, miserly desire to gain and hoard wealth.
This performance explores the questions...
Why is it that in our country so FEW have so MUCH and so MANY have so LITTLE?? How is it that Wall Street is receiving the largest taxpayer bailouts in the history of the world with no strings attached, while the American middle class continues to disappear, poverty is increasing and the gap between the very rich and everyone else is growing wider and wider?? Why is it that the top one-tenth of 1 percent own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent??
In this performance, we will attempt to embody the greed, fraud, & depravity of our American econmic system and explore how this consciousness of greed and lack permeates through all of us. We do this in hopes of inspiring a new generation of people to work for social and economic justice. Incorporating elements of Japanese BUTOH, postmodern dance, multimedia, and performance art, we cordially invite you to join us for this journey as we explore the depths within ourselves and of the greater collective.
HANA HANA Performance Collective is a postmodern, interdisciplinary, experimental dance performance collective based in Houston, Texas and directed by Ivan Daniel Espinosa, a student at Evergreen College in Olympia, Washington. Influenced primarily by Japanese Butoh, Hana Hana Performance Collective combines Eastern and Western movement principles and performance art influences, along with the use of image projection, to share deeply personal stories of the heart and the soul that highlight the most beloved and most feared elements of the human condition.
