About the Work: The Moving Architects continues to explore Erin Carlisle Norton's signature movement style through three divergent dance works. "The New" poses dangerous renditions of the Twist with Stepford-esque 60's flair; "Jellyfish" reveals liquidy limbs in an emulsifying duet; and "Fixate" embodies complex power plays with the pulsating guitar rhythms of the company's long-time collaborator Ian Hatcher.
Yael Nachajon and company use twisting, collapsing, contact-driven movement to explore interpersonal interactions in this new work, ASAP. The piece amplifies scenarios to the absurd to get to the core of human behavior. " " Choreographer Biographies
