standing alone facing you
standing alone facing you (2016)

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2016)
Choreography: Sara Coffin
2 dancers
25 minutes

If you could face yourself what would be revealed? Curious about the equation of two, this is a duet not about two people but a solo that explores the internal and external self. A physical reality and the mirror of who we want to be, this work is a physical and emotional interpretation of the state of mind that we all experience;

"Is this enough? Am I enough?" ~ If you could exctract yourself from your own body, what would you tell your present day self?

Through a journey of self-reflection the duo acting as a solo realize we are our own heroes and life will not go as expected. The best way to help yourself is to face your own vulnerability. Life is an improv – Just get up and dance
