Jasmine Hearn, Pamela Pietro and Nicola Bullock
How do we want to set up the room? Conversation between Pamela Pietro and Jasmine Hearn is an improvised, embodied landing score and dialogue that references their six-year practice of encounter and movement, in which they know each other as friends through form, tone and shape.

Subtle Overwhelms / Solo by Nicola Bullock
A dance theater piece that deals with the nothing in life. Through movement, poetry and song, Nicola Bullock seeks to negotiate and surrender to the invisible power of the void as a metaphor for what cannot be known. Questions like Do we make sense of things that don't make sense? and How do we process the lack of experience? set improvisational scores and choreographies in motion on a journey in which we explore unknown space and unknown time together. (Audience participation is voluntary.)
