A canyon is formed by the simple act of erosion—in which the earth yields over time to a repetitive force, giving birth to a landscape of opening rather than of imposition. Many have described witnessing nature on this scale as life-changing—an experience not easily put into words. While abstract in nature, this new work by Jasperse and his collaborators seeks to reflect these qualities by exploring the extraordinary that originates with the ordinary. Six dancers, including Jasperse, turn the stage into a space beyond language, where strangeness, subtlety, spaciousness, density, and fervent shifts all play a role—centering on the transformative power of losing oneself in visceral experience, where intellect is humbled into a state of wonder.
“Mr. Jasperse has a keen eye for detail and composition; the subtle internal logic of his choreography tends to drive both sense and sensibility in his dances.” – Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
