a house with no walls: first floor by Simon Montalvo

Boston Dancemakers Residency Showcase


Directed and choreographed by Simon Montalvo, a house with no walls: first floor is an evening-length dance production sharing stories of transgender and gender nonconforming people through movement, physical theater, and audio interviews. Drawing parallels between the physical body and a house, this work explores the possibilities of existing outside of traditional structures, as a means to look towards a utopian vision. Who are we now, and who do we wish to become?
