WORLD’S ON FIRE ODC/Dance collaboration with The Crooked Jades By turns heartfelt, visceral, wicked, and tender, “World’s on Fire” explores the cyclical nature of human experience. The smoldering choreography and fiery music, performed live by the renowned ensemble The Crooked Jades, lets us glimpse a slice of American history through the vivid portal of sound. The Jades work their magic within the lineage of old-time music. Building upon Kate Weare’s 2010 collaboration with The Jades, Weare and Brenda Way’s “World’s on Fire” touches on themes of kinship, belief, codes of honor, love and the will to endure.
