This sly, delicate performance by choreographer and video artist, Dean Moss, was created in collaboration with dancer Sawami Fukuoka, composer Stephen Vitiello, and painter Angela Dufresne. Through it, Moss invites the audience to “join in something worn, physical, and reflective; something incomplete and unabled, perhaps unsafe, but still sweet: a warm lonesome concoction mulled by more than the pandemic’s long embrace.”
