Ouramdane, a French choreographer of Algerian descent, took a journey to Vietnam and Cambodia, where his father had fought in the 1950s as an Algerian conscript in the French army. The journey inspired Distant…, a work that explores the idea of being a foreigner—as a colonialist, as the colonized, and as an immigrant. His use of masks, images, sounds, and movement electrify his solo performances with an effect that “is surprisingly complex." - The New York Times. Tickets: $25 reserved seating; $20 members, students, and seniors.
