X-Axis (2002)

A multimedia collaboration in dance, video, aerial work and performance art narrative, X-Axis merges real and virtual spaces into a surreal dimension. Projected on both a mid and upstage scrim, prerecorded and live video feed is mixed with live narrative and superimposed over a series of fragmentary, (grounded and aerial) solos, trios, and duets -- often interrupted by moments of unison dancing.
