Indigo is an improvised dance performance for ten dancers and one musician, set against a backdrop of panoramic ink painting.  The color indigo infuses both the graceful formality of Japanese kimono, as well as the durability and simplicity of a well-worn pair of jeans.   As the musician plays a range of instruments, from the modern (hang) to the ancient (didgeridoo), the dancers will take the audience along through an arc of movement scores.  Indigo is a search for the thread that interconnects the sublime and the pedestrian; for the color that imbues both dye and sky. The work will unite dancers from two different dance ensembles—one from Seattle and one from Columbus, Ohio—who share a common language of practiced scores, yet ‘speak’ individual physical dialects. The dancers compose in real time, responding to one another and to the environmental the context of set, sound, and scores.  In witnessing an improvised performance, the audience can feel themselves drawn into the world of the dancers’ spontaneous creation and creative problem solving. The goal of Indigo is to immerse the audience in an experience of beauty, mystery, and inspiration—opening, from everyday life, a window to the extraordinary.
