Installation continues post-show
you are the pivot point
we are the dance
the dancers rest, they get tired, but the dance GOES ON.
The Other Side of Stillness is a post-modern relay ritual, a never-ending duet for five or more dancers exploring endurance, replacement and constancy amidst the ancient / future landscape of Wonder Valley, CA.
This dual-channel installation combines delicious movement (rigorous practice) with stark portraits of the dancers’ entering or exiting a performance state. In their vivid worksuits and Power Accessories, The Modern Dancers of America are accompanied by any one of twenty-five record albums chosen by the audience.
