World Premiere: How to become a partisan
APRIL 25 / 4-9PM

On the 70th anniversary of Italy’s liberation from fascism, Italian-American choreographer Alice Gosti, in collaboration with Seattle composer Hanna Benn, premieres this five-hour, come-and-go, immersive performance, sparked by a series of interviews with Italian resistance fighters. "How to become a partisan" merges wild physicality with haunting vocals and intergenerational choirs inside a Seattle landmark.
"How to become a partisan" is commissioned, developed, and produced through Velocity’s Made in Seattle new dance development program.
