Everyone loves a good story. In Nike Imoru’s Ode, she spotlights an actor’s story where past, present, and all-powerful imagination collide in a beautiful stage song. Ode is a dance-theatre fusion of story telling that depicts the journey of a life filled with wit, wonder, faith, and a good dose of ruthless reality. In the depiction of numerous characters – from Mary Poppins to Lady Macbeth and turning zombie to life-saving surgery, Ode shows us how choices, actions, and consequences can inspire us to do extraordinary things in life and in art. With direction and choreography by first-time Seattle director John Britton, and original musical compositions by Ryan Leyva, Ode creates stories upon stories to make you laugh, cry, and ponder life’s rich tapestry.
