Presented by the Boston Dancemakers Residency, in collaboration with VLA DANCE Director & Choreographer Victoria Lynn Awkward
Virtual Viewing June 20 – 25
IN THE SPACE BETWEEN follows Awkward on a journey of internal growth. Through the abstract language of contemporary dance, Victoria explores identity politics as a vessel towards freedom. Her journey takes her from reality, to a dream world, and to uncomfortable spaces “between.” The show and its companion published journal, POLLEN: The Spreading of Ideas, are informed by textual analysis, socratic discussions, and deep personal reflection. IN THE SPACE BETWEEN features a dynamic fabric set by NADAAA’s Arthur Chang and Christian Borger, original music by Aaron Brown and Capella Auriga, costumes by Mitzi Eppley, and light design by Elmer Martinez.
All current COVID guidelines will be in place for artists and audiences for each performance.
