Ann returns to GW to remount a new version of FLAG, a political work to celebrate the upcoming 2020 presidential election, with GW dancers during the Fall Dance Concert  November 14, 15, 16, 2019, in the Betts Theatre of Marvin Center. “Flag2ReDo”is a rigorous performance experience because it's big full- bodied movement while also performing a constant vocal score. The piece also has humor and pathos and is abstract and obvious (!) all at once.” ­–Ann Carlson

Unlike early modern dance choreographers such as Martha Graham, Carlson sees no reason to delve into classic Western myths and literature to elucidate present-day situations. Rather, she looks to the world immediately around her, garnering delight in fathoming the distinct ways in which different people around her move, observing the topics that interest them, and grasping the ways in which they speak. –Jacob’s Pillow – Dance Interactive.
