Everywhere (a work-in-progress)
Choreographed by Kate Watson-Wallace
Dancers: Jaamil Kosoko and Makoto Hirano
Music by Chris Brown, Beyonce, Stevie Nicks, Antony and the Johnsons
Everywhere is a dance made in collaboration with an on-line audience. We are at the very beginning of a two-year process in which people can go to our website,, and enter movement or performative tasks that we will treat our movement study with. So, over time, a collective dance will be made in collaboration with an on-line audience. This is our first study. Tonight we are experimenting with some of these structures in live performance.
