Support the final phase of new dance work, Kiss Kiss Missiles.

About this Project:
The Space/Movement Project (TSMP) seeks support for a new dance work choreographed collaboratively by all 7 company members. Kiss Kiss Missiles will premier in March 2012 at the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago, in a shared program with Rachel Damon/Synapse Arts and Erica Mott.

Kiss Kiss Missiles couples misunderstandings of present day interaction with social dance tradition. Extensive research has led to the discovery of new methods of weight share, alternative rhythmical structures and the intense communication cycle that emerges between partners. In a series of makeshift line dances, the heavily technical and dynamic work assembles surging directional changes, fleeting partnerships and mismatched patterning. Fast-shifting spatial configurations will reveal synchronicities that twinkle and dissolve as movers aim to maintain individuality.

About the Company:
The Space/Movement Project, (TSMP) continues to establish a reputation as a unique and emerging voice in the Chicago’s arts community. While exploring contemporary dance forms, TSMP cultivates an ongoing analysis of collective and individual identity. The company (which includes Allyson Esposito, Larisa Eastman, Anne Kasdorf, Chloe Nisbett, Leah Raffanti, Megan Schneeberger and Stacy Wolfson) operates without a defined artistic leader as all members rotate between roles of director, follower, participant and observer to develop evening-length, fully collaborative works.


The Space/Movement Projects hopes you will join in supporting this work and continuing to be a part of the collective experience that is TSMP. By lending your support you become a collaborator in the process of creating Kiss Kiss Missiles. Funds will cover production expenses, rehearsal space, and the development of the new work.
