We jump to hope. We crawl to reclaim time. We hammer with knuckles to heal. We gather for all we can. Repeating rhythms, the big jump, the formation, the tripping, the bouncing, the embracing ritual. It’s all there.
Unfolding II is a choreography that responds to the architecture, energy and history of three different places. One of these places is legendary as a gathering place, civic arena and stage. One of the others may never have been danced in before.
Seven fragilities send seventeen animated gazes toward a skyscraper. Soft human bodies are there too.
Seven fragilities send seventeen animated glances towards one in particular. Everyone is particular in a particular way.
Seven fragilities send seventeen animated glances towards themselves. To see if they are still standing, as a group.
Seven fragilities send seventeen animated glances out to the world. As a cry for help. As a call to action.
Seven fragilities send seventeen animated glances out to everything, realizing how small their bodies are from a distance.
