THE CHOREOGRAPHY is a performance filled with galloping horses, confetti, bold movements, imaginary hamsters, and dance. The piece explores the world through movement and examines how the way we move can affect our thoughts and what we see and feel.
THE CHOREOGRAPHY is a participatory performance based entirely on the audience's participation. All participants receive a pair of headphones, and a guiding voice gives them instructions on how to relate to one's body and to one another. In other words, there are no dancers in the performance. Instead, the members of the audience create THE CHOREOGRAPHY together.
THE CHOREOGRAPHY is available in 16 languages. Each audience member chooses which language they want to listen to. Regardless of language, everyone can participate together and listen to the same instructions.
