Line in the Sand (2018)

Line in the Sand is a work for 12 dancers with a structural boundary set in the space resembling a fence.  The piece begins with one dancer crawling beside and behind the fence.  She crawls through and a line of 11 dancers enter the space, revealing their faces one by one.  As the work continues the dancers struggle with the ever present structure, constantly interacting with it and one another.  These interactions are fueled by the current border crisis and current events of separation of family.  Dynamics are enhanced by a score by Jone Jenranaud and the dance finishes in silence.  The original dancer crawls back under the fence and the others exit solemnly humming You are my Sushine.
