An indulgent series of collaborative duets facilitated by Eugene-based choreographer Shannon Mockli featuring sound artist Jon Bellona, and dancers Dakota Bouher, Karen Daly, Sarah Ebert, and Carlos Rassmussen, exploring our movement identities and histories, and how differences meld into distinct syntheses. What is the nature of our being together at this time? As an in-process showing, audience feedback will be a valuable and much-appreciated part of the program.

During time spent visiting her father in a dementia care facility choreographer Marissa Rae Niederhauser became curious about the correlations between Alzheimer’s Disease and General Relativity. She is joined by composer Juniana Lanning and actor Daniel Shaw for a devised theater work contemplating the slippery qualities of time, intangibility of self/relationships and the myth of memory amidst a tangle of chairs, record players, paper airplanes and unspooled cassette tapes.
