I contributed to Orange Grove Dance's new project Remnants, which premiered at the Kennedy Center on Sunday, March 11. I worked with Matt to design the two projection systems and program the video. In addition to original video created by Matt Reees, the project included content I created for Orange Grove Dance's previous work, Waking Darkness. Waiting Light.
Remnants is a bridge to the stories that we have been told since we were young and the places we have still never touched. This Orange Grove Dance world premiere takes audiences on a mytho-poetic and dream-like journey that physically conjures up the visual metaphors of the inexhaustible burning hope of the human spirit. What does it mean to start over? What are the things we carry? What survives within us? What is left behind?
