Heather Stewart: against hard air

Choreography by Heather Stewart

Music Composed by dull
Part of the Boston Dancemakers Residency. Presented by Boston Center for the Arts and Boston Dance Alliance

About against hard air:

Reaching moments of trance through duration and repetition, “against hard air” brings you into an immersive world of sound and movement. Created by choreographer Heather Stewart, in collaboration with composer dull, “against hard air” is a new full-length creation inspired by images of vast, barren landscapes and abandoned, decaying houses. Performed by three female dancers, the work examines the ways in which we fall short, and the lengths we will go in order to reach gratification.
