One Hundred Giving Way is a dance work exploring communal organization and trust-making. We are organized by how we perceive and we perceive based on our relational attachments, detachments, pleasures and displeasures, neutralities and desires. Dancers both generate and navigate a high stakes environment. Physical practices of surrender, near collisions, taking flight, and sensing nervous system to nervous system, provoke change in our awareness. In this environment the dancers cultivate advanced empathic sensing, something the world is in need of today. We can transform the world by sincere example.
