Racy Brand

There’s a fascinating split-second of time that sometimes occurs between two actions or choices. It’s that moment during falling, for example, when the fall has begun but the person or object has not yet hit the ground.  The implicit question, however, in focusing so intently on this specific moment, is how do you spend the rest of the time?

Levi Gonzalez

This dance starts from the body and its internal structures – the nerves, the organs, the fluids, the bones – and uses those structures as a framework for creating the multilayered components of performance. Its about the body of the performers, the body of the audience, and the body of this thing we call “performance”, as if it was all one big collection of nerves and guts and thoughts and feelings.

thought, over thought, liberation.

Reinforcements are here for times of questioning, doubt, and exuberance. This new work in progress examines idyllic landscapes and expatriate behaviors with ruminations around partnership, connection and escape.
