From Ashes Comes the Day

From ashes comes the day , the new duet by Erin Flynn with guest artist, George Stamos, will premiere as a part of the Dance X tour to Tokyo’s Aoyama Round Theater, Seoul’s LIG Art Hall and Montreal’s Tangente in May 2011.
Set to the musings of  composer Eric Craven, From ashes comes the day, explores the ephemeral yet relentless passage of time and our varying capacity to change with it. Taking inspiration from the documentary Grey Gardens, the slapstick physicality of cartoons and the iconic dreamlike adventure set inside the mind of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the piece alternates between glamorous fantasies and a mundane, decaying reality. Designers Karine Gauthier, Jeremy Gordaneer and Marianne Theriault will create a cinematic cohesion of lighting, décor and costume, with a Steampunk aesthetic in sepia tones. In From Ashes comes the day, two enigmatic performers pitch themselves into the follies of youth and wake up to the eventual morning after.
