The space between (us) unpacks the human experience within the built environment, which commonly evokes feelings of isolation and emotional disconnection from the banal, everyday places we move through and inhabit. Such experiences stem from a variety of factors such as design that separates us from one another and controls our movements in space, social norms that discourage interconnection with those we do not know, and the increasing level of mediated interaction that takes place through digital communication. During two performances, several sculptural objects act as a site for a weaving journey that begins in a meaningless, modern space but, coming unhinged from the norm, is remade into a place of exploration, creativity, freedom, and, ultimately, intimate human connection.
Featured dancers include Deep Vision Dance Company members Deontay Gray, Samantha Hopkins, Melissa Lloyd, Sofie Massa, Rachel Moore, Sarah Smith, and Ann Zickefoose.
Additional collaborators include an original score by PJ Dorsey (Tarotplane) and Erik Spangler (DJ Dubble8), dancing by Deep Vision Dance Company and costuming by Kendra Shapanus with 3D fabrication support by Chip Banister, Wilder Childs and Pete Karis.
