bird body / woman body-jump Premiere

Woman Body
Jump This piece reflects on social situations from a personal and intimate daily conversation. One movement is woven into another to introduce a female perspective, disclosing an animated dialogue between the dancers who reveal its aesthetic value through different states of matter. This dance allows the face behind the face to come through. It features a collection of documentary images that piece together a story about three empathetic characters
Traveling through time, this piece submits to the flow of the current at the heart of the world, offering a glimpse into the human soul and forging a new connection between emotion and thought, earth and sky in the form of an uncompromising dance. Traversing the globe and far beyond she dances with wings on her back, her hands becoming clouds that release drops of water onto dry land. Who said, who saw, who heard, who knew, who who who am I.
