We want to explore ideas (new ones, as well as persistent fascinations) and get to know people in the studio. We're eager to meet new dancers and to play with dancers we know, but haven't had a chance to work with yet. We'll be dancing hard, playing with text, and potentially engaging in games of make believe, both fraught and silly.

All Roads Are Lined With Teeth is a new evening-length show choreographed and directed by sisters Megan and Shannon Kurashige and created in collaboration with London-based playwright Amber Hsu and Oakland-based composer Aram Shelton. Featuring a cast of five dancers and a band of four musicians playing live, All Roads Are Lined With Teeth is part dance and part play, a surreal story about a woman who flees a crumbling world for a journey on which she encounters memories transformed into teeth, slow motion long distance runners, and houses built from benches.
