SHOW casts a focus on the elements of live performance in a bid to make them plastic and palpable. At the core of its exploration is the attempt to be present in a moment of expression, while existing in an awareness caught by a set of definitive frames. The relationship between performers and audience and their mutually assigned spaces, movement and roles, are implicated in the work as they share the changing sequence of what unfolds.

SHOW premiered at The Kitchen in November 2011. Funded by Dance programs at The Kitchen, The Brown Foundation, Inc. of Houston, the Jerome Foundation, and The MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital. SHOW was made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. SHOW was developed in part through a residency at Impulstanz Vienna, Austria and Mount Tremper Arts, NY.
