A Crack in Everything examines the liminal space between action/reaction, cause/effect, and before/after. The work itself exists in two realms: a dance performance and a visual installation that are both distinct from and, complementary to one another. Through these mirror elements, the company meditates on moments that divide people’s lives into non-linear experiences of time and how memory can create its own separate physical life, space, and time. It is an experiment in permeability and containment, aggression and catharsis.
