Berkeley Dance Project 2014: Intimate Distance
New works by Katie Faulkner, Ashley Ferro-Murray, and Jack Gray
Directed by Lisa Wymore
April 17-26, 2014
Time, memory, and motion.
Three new choreographic works explore the concept of distance. Jack Gray, founder of New Zealand’s Atamira Dance Company, will co-devise a series of responses exploring the Maori concept of Tūrangawaewae, or “standing place” in the world, through rituals that acknowledge one another’s Mauri, or 'life force.' Katie Faulkner returns to work with our students on a new dance about traveling on a long and narrow road. And TDPS Ph.D. Candidate Ashley Ferro-Murray, in collaboration with Lisa Wymore, will lead students through an online process exploring the ways we move together across time zones.
