        Watch the full performance at www.ontheboards.tv Seattle wunderkinds zoe | juniper head in a new, streamlined direction as they explore technological methods for setting and triggering their raw tableaux of movement and stage design. BeginAgain forces different perspectives for dance on a proscenium stage using two juxtaposed video screens, the physical interruption of the normally flat dance space, live body casting, Shuey’s futuristic video and Scofield’s intense, primal choreography. Scofield’s formidable technique is matched by dancer Ariel Freedman (Batsheva Dance Company, Kidd Pivot). BeginAgain features gorgeous, large-scale set design from paper artist Celeste Cooning, and music from Morgan Henderson (Blood Brothers, Fleet Foxes) and sound designer Julian Martlew.

              Performance of Tere O'Connor's work "Sister" Part of Velocity OPEN FORUM: Irreconcilability, presented by Velocity and On The Boards. NOV 23, 2015 / Velocity Founders Theater Performed by fearless and unparalleled NYC dancers, David Thomson and Cynthia Oliver, "Sister" weaves various dance vocabularies into an intimate, complex, yet often playful tapestry, creating an unexpected universe. "Sister" (2012) was commissioned by the Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois and is the third work in Tere O’Connor’s BLEED project investigating the complex strata of information comprising a dance. “I tried to escape the omnipresence of theme and variation in dance by immersing myself in what I call ‘variation and variation.’ I looked to sisters as a metaphor for duplication, sameness and difference. I was attempting to validate a different idea regarding ‘development’ in a dance, one that didn’t offer an anchoring point.” – Tere O’Connor on Sister
