“ODD,” inspired by the Norwegian figurative painter, Odd Nerdrum, united Shinichi Iova-Koga‘s inkBoat collaborative with Oakland’s Axis Dance Company, which integrates able and disabled performers. In the past, the troupe has commissioned pieces from dance world heavy hitters like Bill T. Jones and Joe Goode, but rarely has it been tested as in this unbroken, 75-minute opus. And rarely has it emerged with such stunning results. SF Chronicle review by Allan Ulrich: inkboat.com/review-odd-inkboataxis-sf-chronicleallan-ulrich/
