THE ARCHITECTURE OF BEING
20 mins //Premiered January 30th, 2015 at Velocity Dance Center
The Architecture of Being deals with relationships. How does a human relate to a mass of people, to architecture, to space, and to self? This work utilizes a cast of 17 performers. The choreography of the mass uses large formations to open, close, and shift the space. These formations build a human architecture that is layered with the soloists’ material navigating through it. The piece serves as a reflection on the idea of being and evokes a dynamic flow of emotional states. After an accumulation of harsh images, what is found beneath it all is a striking moment of forgiveness.
