These are the Ones We Fell Among (work in progress)

a work in progress

Preparing for a November 5-7, 2021 Premiere at ODC Theater in San Francisco, inkBoat has joined forces with award winning artist Ann Carlson to create this new work.

Two trapped and transforming humans, enmeshed and enjoying each other most of the time, inhabit a world reminiscent of Samuel Beckett and Dr. Seuss. “These are the Ones We Fell Among” responds to the pandemic, to extinction, to love and to loss. This evening length work is informed by the movement, behavior, metaphors and mythologies surrounding earth’s largest land mammal: the elephant.

Conceived, choreographed and directed by Ann Carlson.

Dana Iova-Koga and Shinichi lova-Koga are performing, supported by 20+ year inkBoat collaborators: composers Carla Kihlstedt and Shahzad Ismaily, lighting designer Allen Willner and set designer Frank Lee.

We truly need your support to continue this work .  . .


We know there are many needs right now. With this work we intend to contribute a bit of surprise, humor and distraction in these dark times. So PLEASE, give what you can, it will keep us going and  we so want to bring this work to you. No donation is too small (or too big)!

In the meantime, we wish you and yours health and resiliency and thank you for your consideration.

Ann Carlson is an award winning interdisciplinary artist whose work borrows from the disciplines of dance and performance as well as visual, conceptual and social art practices.
