Where Are You Going, Where Did You Go
“Where Are You Going, Where Did You Go” is a multi-phase dance project exploring personal and geographical thresholds, created through a series of dance-based rituals. The research includes five dance events taking place on the seasonal solstices, in the furthest points, in each direction, of the continental USA.
Our research takes us to:
West Quoddy Head, Maine. September 2018
Cape Alava, Washington. July 2019
Northern Minnesota. September 2021
East Cape, Florida. December 2021
Central Kansas. April 2022
