An interdisciplinary dance project inspired by particle entanglement.
Spooky Action with is inspired by Einstein's famous phrase referring to particles that are so closely linked, they share the same existence. A collaboration with poet/performer Barbara Adler, this new interdisciplinary work weaves together contemporary dance, poetic storytelling and original composition to extend the theory to human connections. In the full length work, we experience entanglement as both pleasure and problem: how do we respond to connectivity that happens beyond our choosing? By turns intricate, refined, and dryly witty, Spooky Action brings together thought-provoking dance and engaging narrative to probe the mysterious ways we act on each other’s lives.
