SITE LINES

“As we vacate our previous venue, Spazio Performativo, and prepare our new one, Site Lines brings attention to work that is site-specific both for the dancer and the audience. How does the site affect our sight? How does the viewer affect the dancer moving? This social choreography of space is both subtle and strong, and can bring a sense of newness and collective unity to dance as an artform. The artist and the audience are both free to define their own position without the constraints of the proscenium stage. This can also extend into our daily routines as a new way of seeing and sensing the world. Please take the time to enjoy” - Gerry Morita
