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.

and experience, LOT X is an ambitious, thoughtful,
and sometimes sorrowful,
imagining of our collective future.

transforms the staging area from which
the performers cling to hope and each other."
