SAFE HOUSE is a series of improvised duets, and a space where two people show up, give over, and have faith.
In SAFE HOUSE, Willow and Alana engage in an on-going dialogue that considers the inability for truth to be nailed down, the questions and quest that is life, and using our proto-language of movement as a way to make meaning. In this space, we enter as who we are - women, mothers, wives, homemakers, and artists - blending life and art through the use of sound score, props, and dance as a social practice. We improvise, not knowing what will happen, an element of risk we step into each time.
"Alana and Willow dance beautifully together. I want to see more!"
Joy Madden, Choreographer/Performance Artist
"Smart bodies, continuing to work, be together, commit the time, and lean into the unknown, finding the paths through the thicket of daily life via movement."
Hannah Dennison, Dance Artist and Director, Cradle to Grave Arts, Inc.
