“We need to gamble way more than we do—in dance and in life. With time and age we gamble less and less—less with our money, less with our hearts, because we’ve known pain. With improvisation you seek out pleasure, and with that comes discovery. And often what you discover is what you don’t know. There is a great freedom in feeling that you don’t know everything. I keep a very nice percentage of not knowing in my life.” — Danielle Agami*
The “Glenn” in CALLING GLENN—a new work choreographed by Agami and performed by her troupe Ate9—is Wilco percussionist Glenn Kotche, who will accompany the troupe’s performance of the piece this weekend at UCLA.
