A Crack in Everything mythologizes the experience of our senses, creating performance and visual art that exists in the state of the liminal, the sense of being “in-between.” The performance and installation is a meditation on the moments that divide people’s lives into before and after.
In A Crack in Everything: Installed, zoe | juniper use video and live, local dancers to distill and restructure the mythic foundations of the staged performance. The installation is an attempt to capture the physical and kinesthetic perspective of the performers, and to invite the audience and the community deeper into the world we have created. Both the installation and proscenium performance offer different and necessary opportunities to explore detail, relationship, time, breath, and textures, equally as their own entities and in relationship to each other.
zoe | juniper are recipients of an Artist Trust Fellowship and GAP grant and received a National Dance Project Production Grant, NPN Creation Fund, and Trust for Mutual Understanding and Dance Theater Workshop Suitcase Fund Grant. A Crack in Everything is a National Performance Network Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by Bates Dance Festival in partnership with New York Live Arts, On the Boards, Jacob’s Pillow, PICA, and NPN. The installation of A Crack in Everything is made possible by the Contemporary Art Centers (CAC) network, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), with major support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. CAC is an initiative of NEFA’s National Dance Project.
