Event description
In-Person: A dance theater piece, "between the balance," discusses the fragile equilibrium of the human self in light of the pandemic

About this event

A dance theater piece, "between the balance," discusses the fragile equilibrium of the human self in light of the pandemic. This story is told through the dancers' dialogue, gestures and movement that is confined to a physical box drawn on the floor as well as virtual boxes. This work is created for two audiences - a virtual zoom audience and a live-in person audience.

This work utilizes choreography, “Zoom-ography,” spoken-word / text, and video, to create a rhetorical and sometimes literal dialogue between dancers, composer, physical audience and virtual audience. In "between the balance" dancers communicate opposing ideas of balance and instability, weakness and strength, and wellness and illness. A sound score compliments the movement in some scenes and dissonantly contradicts the movement in others. Original music composed by William Catanzaro.

At Culture Lab LIC, the dancers perform in tapped boxes on the floor, representing quarantine and confinement. A computer is placed at the edge of their box, where the dancers are logged into the zoom performance. Occasionally a projection of the zoom performance appears, representing a juxtaposition of connection and disconnect via small digital squares that have become a part of daily life. The zoom audience will watch only their zoom screen. The physical, live audience will experience both the live event, as well as parts of the zoom performance projected onto the wall behind the dancers.

Carefully choreographed and constructed scenes create a 50 minute piece of dancing, movement with text and monologues, video and sound. As the piece develops the dancers convey hope and strength despite shifting imbalance/equilibrium.
