Rebecca Alson-Milkman Dance (www.alsonmilkmandance.com)

What: no clean lines in the drying concrete translates the psychological state of living in the in-between into movement tasks mapped onto the dance space. Dancers Donna Costello, Jamie Graham and Alexis Steeves transition athletically, exhaustingly through solo, duet and trio as they navigate physical and spatial challenges, and their relationships to each other. The dancing occurs in carefully bordered zones, then sometimes spirals beyond those borders and coalesces into sections that emphasize subtle timing, rhythmic shifts and gentle, deep listening. Multiple group snapshots emerge and accrete to form an evolving family portrait of individuals trying to connect through hidden difference and quiet trauma.
