Emily Johnson is a choreographer who hails from Alaska, which explains why The Thank-You Bar seems like a dream you might have if you fall asleep watching modern dance on TV and Nanook of the North came on while you’re dreaming. It’s a mingling of myths, an allusion to lived history—and then there are the fish taped to forearms, dumbly migrating wherever their human bearer takes them. The theme of the work is “displacement,” and the performance unfolds through motion and music in a dark room. “This is our architecture. This is where we are. Put us all in the same place for a moment,” says Johnson. SK
