If You See Something
Site Adaptive Work
4 dancers, 60 minutes, no intermission
If you see something, say something, is a slogan adopted by the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority in March 2003, reminding transit riders through signs and repeated announcements of their merely relative safety. Years later this tag line still runs strong. This stark work combines raw and brutal physicality with intimate video portraits and intense theatricality to expose human instinct in the face of fear. Ideally suited for thrust or surround settings that place the audience in close proximity to the stage. Appropriate for galleries.
