Zoë Klein Productions presents Born, Never Asked. Feb 2-4, 2018 at Dance Mission Theater.
Born, Never Asked. is an auto-biographical acrobatic and aerial dance theater piece and gallery installation that addresses the complexity of international adoption, the importance of origin, and how US privilege glosses over issues of loss, race, immigration, and citizenship. Extraordinary acrobatic imagery, while captivating, serves as a vessel of the difficult raw truths that international adoptees must face within an anti-immigrant political climate. Performed as a 1 hour journey, this performance work is rooted in images of early ancestral body memory and is driven by the core question, how one can achieve wholeness in the face of conflicting loyalties between lands, languages, families and cultures?
