About Falling Out
Part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival
For the past 10 years, relentlessly inquisitive theater artists Jessica Grindstaff and Erik Sanko have created onstage magic as a means to address current events and timeless mythologies. Their latest is a rippling meditation on water, heartbreak, and healing in response to the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster. In collaboration with Dai Matsuoka of dance troupe Sankai Juku, the work weaves flex dance, butoh, and Phantom Limb’s unique puppet theater into a visually arresting tapestry of collective experience and artistic alchemy.
Due to the nature of BAM's programming, children under the age of five are not admitted to BAM live events intended for adults, unless otherwise noted.
