Katharine Hawthorne presents The Escapement, a danced history of timekeeping. This adventurous new evening length work tracks human methods of keeping time from sundials through the atomic clock. Part animated natural history exhibit, part high energy dance performance, The Escapement offers audiences a rich perspective on how we subdivide and observe time.
The dancers are Jesse L. Chin, Katherine Disenhof, Katharine Hawthorne, Courtney Mazeika, Suzette Sagisi, & Megan Wright.
