Places That Shape You
This evening-length dance performance is inspired by the physical perimeters that cities provide for our lives, and examines the relationship between culture and urban spaces. Places That Shape You blends postmodern contemporary movement, text, projection and film to navigate the audience through a world of obsolete and current. With an original music score by Austen Mack, the sound and movement work together to unfold concepts surrounding public and private spaces, community, memory, expectation and abstraction. This work was developed from archival and movement research investigating personal stories, urban theory, placemaking and memories left in the spaces we inhabit. Crafting Places That Shape You has been a fruitful process that will inspire the audience to view their city in a new light.
