World Premier. This work is an act of memory as much as imagination, an effort in the ever-vanishing now to locate the seams that keep past and future distinct. This solo may feature multiple performers, simultaneously…. Some might consider it a duet. Or maybe it’s really a trio or even an octet. Perhaps this dance is just performed by a multitude, most of whom can’t be seen.

“People, dependent as they are upon little things, are undefined and elude their own grasp or the grasp of others, yet with time they, together with little things, acquire traits that can be described, characters, like the surface of the earth, which only from a distance shows the folds of its mountain chains and the nervous system of its rivers.” -Czeslaw Milosz
