AJA (the A’s are silent) are an exciting new group from Seattle. These artists have worked together in the past, but never under their own moniker and artistic endeavor. We can’t wait to see what they create for the Risk/Reward Fest.
AJA is a new collaboration between Anh Nguyen, Jessica Robinson and Alice Gosti. Anh and Alice met in college at the University of Washington and have been working together since 2007 – first under the acronym of DAKA then in the Spaghetti CO. project. Jessica re-meet Alice and Anh in the Spring of 2012. Quickly inspired by their frustration the three have decided to join forces in the creation of a new live performance piece under the working title of Snails do it real slow and pretty.
Drawing from the games of our adolescence and the dynamics between the sexual relationships we have had throughout our lifetimes, AJA presents slugs do it real slow and pretty, a theater/dance/performance/experimental/multi-sensorial experience that lets you fall back into exciting first kisses, the heaviness of losing love, and the thrills of flirting and one-night stands.
