A 25-minute interdisciplinary dance experience with four dancers, an exterior site, and an original guided audio sound score that serves as an immersive guide to the listener.
Linking topography, human form in movement, and the audience’s individual perspectives, TOGETHER IS CLOSE ENOUGH will lead each participant to a cathartic experience of closeness within our pandemic-induced seclusion.
