How does the new social-media-driven reality affect partnerships, friendships, and love? What does voyeurism do to human interactions? How do we create true intimacy and make personal imprints on one another if there is always a swath of plastic between us? Printz Dance Project’s GLASSlands invites audiences to engage with a transparent, inflatable world envisioned by choreographer/director Stacey Printz and set designer Sean Riley. The set pieces are large pod-like structures, or “bubble rooms,” a plastic world that dancers populate and explore. Audiences become voyeurs as they watch vignettes unfold, witnessing what happens when two dancers duet without being able to touch, or when dancers in different pods attempt to “communicate” through the veil of these clear igloo-like structures. In exploring our obstructed attempts at authentic communication, GLASSlands uses dance as a conduit for deepening interpersonal relationships and compassion for our similarities and differences, making way for tangible change.
This is a double bill with DJ Spooky.
