Our artistic research is deeply rooted in process and collaboration, bringing together visual acuity and compelling interpersonal exchange. The body is simultaneously form and content. It is the push and pull between formalism and conceptualism of the moving, thinking body that drives our dance practice. From a visual approach we are interested in the aesthetic, lines in space, distance, perspective, shape, visual rhythm. But moving bodies also hold meaning, stories, and history that unfold in relationship and time. Dance continually intrigues us because it is the intersection between these possibilities. The moving body is a place where multiple drives, ideas, and interactions can move in accord or clash against one another. We are interested in the way relationships operate and how they are displayed and shifted. Our creative process use everyday movements and gestures combined with dynamic, athletic dance and partnering to create, unfold, and manipulate the reading and narrative between performers.
Collaboration is a highly valued part of our artistic work as we find the exchange of ideas, approaches, ways of working, and concerns across fields to be engaging and generative. Using a diverse range of creative processes and methodologies leads to a syntheses between choreographic, theatrical, visual, technological, and sound media in our work which investigates identity, narrative, and subtle shifts of relation. Interdisciplinary creation enriches and stimulates our artist life.
