on second thought

This dance work will be mostly an improvisational structure that the dancers traverse through with differing outcomes. It will be presented as real-time research that features dancers confronting and filtering through their decisions inside of the act of dancing, ultimately arriving at new, unpredictable places. the compositional framework is set, letting the dancers and their physical materials be the variables that allow for multiple solutions to be presented. With the dancers coming from a variety of social, cultural, and geographical backgrounds, this work will celebrate how their unique histories live differently in their bodies and amplify their creative voices. This piece, built on presentness, will therefore feel alive and be filled with surprises as the dancers commit to challenging their instincts.
