What we are doing:
An intimate performance event merging installation art and dance, This is an experience for ten audience members and five performers. It is an invitation to view movement and perceive the body both as an object of art as well as a social creature. This piece explores the body as a container for multiplicity of meaning, shape shifting into recognizable cultural images and abstract shapes.
What does it mean to be present in every moment?
What does it mean to relinquish control?
If the body is a container for multiplicity of meaning, where do recognizable cultural gestures dissolve into abstract shape?
When is the body an art object, a social creature, or both?
What can the body contain?
What are we hiding?
What are we saying when we say nothing at all, and no one is listening?
Please, help us fund this project and immerse yourself in the experience of the performance.
