June Performances || Linda Austin Dance

Linda Austin Dance is performing in two June Festivals, sharing a work-in-progress excerpt of her current project, “a world, a world.” In this excerpt, five dancers channel and splice moments of heterogeneous movement and text in a performative interrogation of a world saturated with image and language.
