Two performers lock eyes with the audience, whose mannerisms and impulsive reactions influence their movements.
Deliberately is sensational researches ways to acknowledge individuals’ complexity. It is a study on relational, emotional and psychological states that offers space to feel, react, and embrace a lack of recognizable landmarks. Throughout the performance, dancers use the emerging movements that help people cope with emotions such as comfort, confusion, humor, and pain. This piece offers a reflection of the observers and welcomes introspection through the building of a connection with the dancers. The experience gives space for complicity, confusion, and openness to new and/or familiar sensations and emotions.
