This is the Place

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


This is the Place is an original dance work created using a long-distance choreographic process. After nearly a year of online collaboration through sharing movement videos, writing, images, and audio recordings, the performers came together for just four days of in-person rehearsal to synthesize the online content into a quartet to be performed live. The shared experience of navigating a digital rehearsal space and building relationships with collaborators through the internet deeply influenced this work. The resultant choreography exhibits themes of memory, replication, and childhood nostalgia interwoven through a pragmatic, athletic, and sometimes violent movement landscape. Please join us for an evening of performance, process insight, and discussion.
