In all my experiences I am conscious of a hand. Whatever moves me, whatever thrills me, is a hand that touches me in the dark, and that touches my reality.

– Helen Keller

Landing Sites is a dance theater work conceived and performed by Daria Faïn. In the future, the piece will also involve invited guests including dancers, a visual artist, a light designer, musicians, thinkers and friends. Landing Sites is an inquiry into the experiences of reality and their consequences in our lives. It will look at the immediate and long-term effects that our perceptions of reality have on the way we produce meaning, belief systems, and changes in our environment. It will manifest as an immersive sensory installation where movement, text, sound, vocals and light and material space will invite the audience to shift phenomenal perceptions.

Landing Sites is commissioned and will be presented by the Chocolate Factory in Spring 2020.

This piece is currently in development through a nine month residency at BkSD and a residency at Zagreb Dance Center in Croatia supported by the GPS/Global Practice Sharing program of Movement Research with funding from the Trust for Mutual Understanding. Landing Sites has also been awarded the Saari residency in Finland funded by the Kone Foundation, where Faïn will work in June 2019 with one American and two European collaborators.
