Moving While Standing Still

The projection creates a harsh, black and white environment that divides and slices through space above and between the dancers. It is abstracted from the concept of the windmill. The act of cutting up space creates a world where the dancers are forced to reach out for support, connect, and move with awareness of each other throughout the piece. There is a juxtaposition of the mechanical projection and meditative movement. The projection is an integral part of the work. Dance, projection, and sound depend on each other with equal weight.
