A Distracted Duet
Choreography by Kaitlin Craven
A symbolic duet presents an exploration of how bodies remain one’s home during significant transitional spaces. It recognizes the capacity of bones and fabric to hold memories. Unable to mask anything, the skeleton juxtaposes my dancing with an unmoved neutrality and notable weight. The shifts throughout the piece point to the ways that we might move on or carry certain things with us into the unknown.

the me then and the you now
Choreography by Michael Barry-Que, Abbey Carlos, Shannon Hartle
