MY DINNER WITH ANDREA: actor + composer for a piece by Andrea Kleine
Andrea Kleine’s new work began as a dance about the music deployed in the CIA’s torture program. In despair, Kleine abandoned that idea and channeled theater shaman André Gregory from his 1981 film My Dinner with André, creating a new version of the famed dinner conversation as she seeks answers on how to make a dance about torture, or how to make anything at all. The piece emerges as an amalgam of fragments: fractures of complicity, futility, and desire.
