During the Impetus Festival we began work on our new project closer. closer deals with kinesthetic empathy and the relationship between movement and change. The piece serves as an experiment in building empathy and understanding the connection between how they feel and how they act, individually and collectively. closer will be an episodic, movement-based performance that begins with a series of one-on-one performer-led audience experiences, an interview (about physicality, movement and transformation), and a guided collective experience that evolves out of these one-on-one episodes. The work will move between the theater and the public spaces of the venues neighborhood.
