The Sublime is Us


World Premiere: Dance Theater Workshop

October 21st- November 1st 2008

Achugar explored the ideas of transparency, honesty, humility, and vulnerability. She and her four dancers began shaping entry points to garner research about how audience and performers might create a communal dance ritual, where dancing feels like a necessary and unquestionable act and a celebration of sensuality and pleasure.
