Communion is an experimental screendance response to the isolation and uncertainty that artists are facing in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. At a time when dancers could no longer breathe together, touch, rehearse or share the experience of movement within the physical studio, Communion invited 40 dancers, separated by physical distance and the pandemic, into a digital space to commune together.<br/><br/>
Each of the 20 unique duets is created from videos by two different dancers who are separated by cities, countries, and sometimes continents. Artist Janessa Clark combines these videos to craft virtual duets which are set to music donated by a composer also collaborating remotely. <br/><br/>
Audience members should bring their own chairs and will be seated, distanced, in the parking lot.
