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
