"ginkgo" is a current collaborative dance piece created by Talia Mason and choreographer, ecologist and artist Christina Catanese. "ginkgo" explores the relationship between remembering and forgetting, erasures of time, and ginkgo as a medicinal herb for memory retention. Stay tuned for more on "ginkgo" as the year progresses, and as the ginkgo leaves start to fall from the trees.

Nostalgia, or collective memory, is not the recollection of past events but rather the physical act of recreating those events in the present. Going backwards is the same as going forward, because both history and the future retrace the same old paths.
— Rebecca Rossen, "Dancing Jewish"

Talia is always looking for performance opportunities! If you are interested in having excerpts or the entirety of  "Onion Dances" in a festival or show, email Talia at tmasondance@gmail.com.
