Can you come outside? comes at a time when we're losing, questioning, and finding ‘home’. Equal parts homage to ‘what was’ and determination to identify ‘what is,’ we look at ideas of what and who makes home so sacred. Nine participants remember, map, embrace, define, and share alongside the audience. Through a game-playing structure, each performer processes personal associations with spaces they identify as home. Can you come outside? offers the opportunity for an ensemble of movers to be together in a world of games/tasks, to have the freedom to play, and to decide what the journey looks like.

Stay tuned for a stand-alone short film that will dive deeply into the stories of each of our collaborators based on these movement concepts; projected premiere Fall 2020.

Thank you to Debbie Fong, fearless illustrator extraordinare; Courtney Barth, costume genius; Robin Ediger-Seto, light! light! more light!; Martin Tugade, aka Chef Lemons; Will Noling, an early thought-giver and outside eye; and Gabbie Burgess, OG dancer gal.
