Director Danielle Agami touches on the beautiful, simple absurdity of desire in this bold meeting of five different disciplines- each collaborator a master of his/her craft.
FISHING has received a creation residency at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art from March 31st- April 7th, 2019. A work-in-progress showing will occur at 8pm on Saturday, April 6th at the Hunter Center. Tickets and more information can be found here.
Jon Hamm- Actor
Actor, director, and television producer best known for playing advertising executive Don Draper for the AMC television drama series, Mad Men (2007–2015). His performance earned him the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series-Drama during 2008 and 2016 and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2015.
Glenn Kotche- Composer/Percussionist
For a percussionist and composer as energetic, inquisitive and versatile as Glenn Kotche, it’s his sense of balance—his ability to thrive in different and seemingly disparate worlds—that really makes him stand out as a musician. Since 2001, Kotche has been the rhythmic anchor in Wilco, one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet.
Danielle Agami- Dancer/Director
Born in Israel in 1984, Agami was a member of the Batsheva Dance Company from 2002-2010. In 2012 Agami relocated to Seattle where she founded Ate9—an undertaking that fully realized her artistic voice as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. In 2016 she was recognized with the Princess Grace Award for Choreography and recently honored with the third Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Female Choreographers at The NYU Center of Ballet.
Amir Raveh- Set Designer
Raveh started out at Bezalel in the industrial design department before starting as an independent practitioner. He has specialized in furniture surgery for the past 15 years. He turns what others consider leftovers into spectacular pieces of art. Raveh’s work emerges from the wrinkles and blemishes of matter- into magnificent poetic furniture that create a dialogue between Now & Then, Industry & Craft.
