Rescue Left Her To Her Plight

Commissioned by Kinetic Studio for Mocean Dance (2008)
Choreography: Susie Burpee
4 Dancers
25 Minutes

This dynamic, impassioned work follows four women as they brave their way through a series of complex physical challenges, the solutions of which lead only to new adversity.The interpreters move between creating the conditions of strife, offering help and comfort, and impeding progress.  In this way, the work provides physical metaphors for community action and stasis, and the tenacity of the individual. 

For whatever we lose, like a you or a me, it's always ourselves we find in the sea
