Excerpts from the productions of Arcane Collective.
ARCANE COLLECTIVE was founded in spring 2011 by independent dance artists Morleigh Steinberg and Oguri whose long time collaborations, over 20 years, have produced work for both stage and screen, in landscapes both urban and wild. Formed as a production company to present their work, independently and together under one umbrella organization, ARCANE COLLECTIVE assembles international artists from interdisciplinary backgrounds, a hybrid of cultures and aesthetics, that creates visually compelling and refined theater. With mesmerizing concentration and urgent dexterity the work of ARCANE COLLECTIVE pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance with the uncanny ability to alter perceptions of the body, space, and time. Their movement vocabulary is simultaneously arcane and profoundly universal. Presenting work steeped in poetic resonance, each production invokes an unprecedented theatrical engagement that carves a lasting impression in the psyche of its audiences.
