Production Details / Press Releases

From the perspective of the choreographer, existence as a human is like a particle being blown around in this enormous space called Earth; feeling as if a tiny atom shifting from place to place coerced into each space. As humans, we design our lives in transactions through cultural, artificial, social, familial, instinctual, animalistic exchanges. These constant variables and replacements instill a sense of purpose… or confusion.
