Choreography/Performer: Ann Sofie Clemmensen
Co-creator/Performer: Tammy Carrasco
Music: Sound design by Ann Sofie Clemmensen
This is the second time that Ann Sofie Clemmensen and Tammy Carrasco have collaborated together. In MODE they are revisiting movement material that they generated in their former collaboration (a group work). In reshaping the material into a duet, they are exploring how their relationship to the movements are changing, as the rearrangement of order, time, and intent solidifies the former into something new.

Ann Sofie Clemmensen is an emerging Danish choreographer. She will graduate with an MFA in Dance from Ohio State University in May 2013. Tammy Carrasco is a first year MFA student in the Ohio State University dance department of dance.
