A jukebox, a roadside bar, a fish that never dies. The Thank-you Bar is a new performance installation of dance, storytelling, live multi-layered music, and visual image that poses the question, “What is a true home?” With musicians James Everest and Joel Pickard, Alaska-born choreographer Emily Johnson connects ideas of displacement, longing, and language to history, architecture, and igloo-myth. The Thank-you Bar creates an intimate space for the truths and illusions of Johnson’s stories to permeate our collective memories.
The presentation of Emily Johnson/Catalyst was made possible by the MetLife Community Connections Fund of the the National Dance Project, a program administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts. Major support for the National Dance Project is also provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from the Ford Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Thank-you Bar is made possible by support from the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, Seventh Generation Fund for Indian Development, The MAP Fund Subito/American Composers Forum and the National Performance Network (NPN). Major contributors of NPN are the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, Nathan Cummings Foundation, MetLife Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency). www.npnweb.org.
