Inspired by the architecture of Gould Hall at The University of Washington, D. Chase Angier and Jennifer Salk created a poetic site-specific performance exploring the difficulties of finding love in a time of complicated lifestyles, technological distraction and diminishing public spaces. During the performance, the audience was brought to various vantage points throughout the four-story atrium to watch a man and woman’s struggle to come together. This central story was complimented by other dances being performed by a large cast of dancers, and duets performed on staircases. Powerfully contrasting experiences of proximity and distance—between performers, and between performers and their audience— within the open concrete and glass environment made for a visually striking and emotionally resonant dance work.
Co-Choreographed by D. Chase Angier & Jennifer Salk in collaboration with the performers.
