Fall and Recover

Friday, March 25, 2011

Irish choreographer John Scott and performers Kiribu and Nina Oiplea discuss “Fall and Recover.” Based on the experiences and stories of survivors of torture in Africa, Asia, and Romania, the work emerges from workshops with clients of The Centre for Care for Survivors of Torture, which is located in Dublin, Ireland. Two Irish dancers perform with a cast of 11 torture survivors from nine countries-- Kiribu is from eastern Africa and Nina Oiplea is from Eastern Europe. “Fall and Recover” opens at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre March 25.
