Umi no Bodi

Ellen Godena, artistic director of the Somerville-based butoh movement troupe, Umi no Bodi re-creates the noise, silence, color, and mechanistic environment of a large factory floor. She and the Umi no Bodi dancers inhabit the shifting forms of large animatronic industrial robots paving a series of futuristic assembly line-like paths behind the Davis Square MBTA station using gigantic rolls of multi-colored felt. Dancers shift from  robot to machine to animal forms as a live, eery soundscape is composed by musician Max Lord.
