On October 15 & 16, Troika Ranch will premiere its latest evening-length performance loopdiver at the Lied Center for Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska.
loopdiver is an hour-long performance work that uses highly complex patterns of repititive movement, music and video to portray the aftermath of an encounter with violence. The viewer is asked to go on a journey that is both dreamlike and maddening as the six performers attempt to escape from their prisons of repetition. The meaning of the materials grows and changes as it appears again and again and again, ultimately challanging us to dive in and break free of our own reptitive and potentially destructive behavior.
The power of loopdiver lies in the choreography. While the music, set, video and lighting are integral parts of the story, the precise execution of the loop structure by the dancers – both in their bodies and in within their psyche – is where the deeper meaning of loopdiver emerges.
