The play between proximity and distance, silence and sound, what is opaque and what is visible coalesce in choreographer and performer Melissa Cisneros’ new dance duet Togetherness. Developed in close collaboration with dancer Eric Geiger and designer Harry Foster, Togetherness proposes a series of movement constellations and deeply intimate harmonies relying on feeling and sensing otherness through the tension of distance. After more than a year of experiencing the pandemic and witnessing its effect in the (collective) body, this dance approaches and yearns for more togetherness.
