From Above | Looking Down is a series of improvised scores that explore how to move with and through comfort. Drawing upon the performers' personal histories with their dance and movement practices and our political present, the piece shifts between the kinetic and the metaphoric, the individual and the collective, searching for ways to offer and receive comfort, care, and support.
