sarAika movement collective will premiere the revised version of “L TRAIN” choreographed and directed by Sara Pizzi & Aika Takeshima. This production is part of the Emerging Artists “Fall 2022 New Work Series”. Performance takes place at TADA Theatre in Manhattan on October 9th at 5pm.

sarAika presents a revised version of its contemporary/conceptual dance performance “L TRAIN”, which was well received in its January premiere and April revival. This time, we invited a guest actor to emphasize the story more. The 38-minute production is divided into 7 acts, involving dance movements by 6 dancers, theatrical play by an actor and MTA recordings. The components are deep bass and rhythmic music selection, acting, which are not often used in contemporary dance works, the choreography is based on partnering, floor work, improvisational skills, storytelling, conceptual art, street dance style influences.

L TRAIN'' speaks about us – about the uncomfortable common sensation that we are not in control. Even if one moment, right now, is precious, it will not last forever. Everything is subject to change. Where is the stability? At the end, life seems like the L train line: everyone goes in the same direction, but nobody has the same destination.

The cast features company dancers: Sara Pizzi, Aika Takeshima, Mayu Nakaya, Faustine Lavie, Haley Morgan Miller, Maitlin Jordan and a guest actor: Arianna Wellmoney.
