In LOT X , audience and dancers form a temporary community where shifts in perspective allow us to consider how we inhabit space and share experience. Considering the layers of recent and distant history of the performance space, LOT X considers our human impact and the hierarchies that can limit passage or movement through space.

"Site-sensitive, technology driven, yet rooted in human values 
and experience, LOT X is an ambitious, thoughtful, 
and sometimes sorrowful, 
imagining of our collective future.
…stellar projection work by Jeremy Mimnagh and team 
transforms the staging area from which 
the performers cling to hope and each other.
