Buffer Overrun addresses information as a liquid and mobile force that tends to erode the importance of place. It explores ways that bodies orient toward multiple, shifting centers, and wonders at the consequences of this contemporary form of vertigo. The choreography and sound incorporate phase shifting, slow motion, structures based on code, and spiral patterns derived from optical illusions. In the midst of acceleration and overwhelm, Buffer Overrun marvels at human adaptability and contemplates patience as something revolutionary.
