Choreographer to bring dance troupe home

Posted: Thursday, July 08, 2004

Sterling's Emily Johnson will return to her home state for "One Night Only" this month.

Actually, Johnson and her Minneapolis-based contemporary dance troupe, Catalyst, will be in the area for two weeks creating a new dance work in Homer, taking part in a Yup'ik dance worskhop and filming a movie for their newest piece.

They also will perform "One Night Only," a collection of work choreographed by Johnson, at 8 p.m. July 16 at the Que'Ana Bar, Mile 122.5 Sterling Highway.

The performance will include "Plain Old Andrea, with a Gun," hailed as a "postmodern feminist wester" including mouth guards, plastic guns and a bullet-proof vest; "Close to Giving Up," which originally was dedicated to the former owners of the Que'Ana Bar; and a sneak-peak excerpt from "Heat and Life," Catalyst's newest work.

Catalyst includes Johnson, six dancers, a musician and a filmmaker.
