Choreographically and conceptually directed by Johnnie Cruise Mercer, Experience:Sanctuary! is a dance theater production that follows the creation (destruction) of a surrealistic (realistic) world with the purpose of micro-observing and testing the colonized mind of the adult human. The stage is destroyed, and a temple is built as the past, the human body/mind, innocence, memory, and self is mentioned, acknowledged, ignored, and then meditated upon. An experiment on instinct, and its relation to both inevitability and change, we (the audience, the artists, and the space) are emotionally dropped into moments of soliloquy, of dialogue, of deep subconscious whispers, of silent troubles, of accustomed sounds, of known events, of unforgettable sights, of stunning visual projections (designed by Visual Designer Torian Ugworji), of breath, of hope, and of what seems to be a familiar yet indefinite end (beginning).
