Remember These Dances

Remember Me

What were the moments that made you who you are today? How do you want to be remembered? Do you remember the 23rd night of September?

Three 20-Somethings asked big questions in the middle of a global pandemic, and created a dance piece that finds its groove in the creases of our reminiscence and imaginations.

Grammar of Space

The Grammar of Space seeks to investigate the full spectrum of meaning and non-meaning through the strategic division of space. How do the places we occupy impact our own experiences and the way others perceive us? Can a place hold onto meaning even when we don’t actively occupy it? What can we learn from distance and proximity? These questions among many others are explored over the course of this co-choreographed duet that blends Charly and Bailey’s distinctive styles into a language that’s uniquely their own.
