Co-Existing

May 2011
Kelly Strayhorn Theater, Pittsburgh, PA

Murphy and Smith take two solo works and morph them into a duet to give the audience a serene sense of two worlds co-existing. Murphy embodies the feeling of time passing without the ability to move forward, while Smith searches for a sense of belonging with a desperate need to return to the past.  While the two individuals dance in a whirlwind of their own circumstance, their crossing paths inevitably affect one another's journey.  This work was presented as part of the newMoves Contemporary Dance Festival.
