A collaboration between Robert Hickerson and Brooke Ellen Taylor.
Dark Matter is thought to work through gravity in order to compose and hold the universe together. While it plays a central role in the formation of structure, it neither absorbs nor omits light, remaining invisible. Dark matter is similar to the relationships we form. Like dark matter they become structures that hold us together both emotionally and physically. “Scaffolding” uses a harness to materialize a relationship. The performers, connected through fabric, attempt to find balance.
