American Dance Festival and the Nasher Museum co-present present the world premiere of a new ADF-commissioned site-specific work at the Nasher Museum. Cara Hagan's new work "were we birds?" was created in collaboration with composer Amanda Addleman. It explores experiences of upheaval, prolonged states of limbo and the subsequent reorganization of one's life following the disorientation of migration. Whether by choice or circumstance, movement on a large scale is often paired with discombobulation. When we manage to pull ourselves back together, what remains out of place? What was never in place to begin with? Audiences will listen to the sound score on their cell phones.
