"Pina Jackson in Mercemoriam", Foofwa d'Imobilité
At the ThinkSwiss Festival: Geneva meets New York, choreographer Foofwa d’Imobilité presents “Pina Jackson in Mercemoriam,” a choreographed comedy, at The Kitchen, March 11, 2012.
Since we lost three Greats of the dance world in the space of one month, and this morbid fact gives them something in common, I decided to conjure the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, the Queen of Tanztheater, Pina Bausch, and the Emperor of Dance Revolution, Merce Cunningham, in an exhilarating triple “comicritical” homage.
