True to our generation, both of our dance backgrounds merge modern and post-modern (and post-post-modern) perspectives in physical and dance-making practices. We are interested in how these histories are inevitably made evident in the work. We also focus on the implications of our strikingly similar physical attributes. Petite in stature and equally athletic with a low-riding center of gravity, our “sameness” opens up a rich space to explore unison material, improvisation and partnering to a heightened degree of precision. We aim to posit athleticism, strength and a guttural sense of ‘go,’ together with femininity and the nuances that make distinct our individualized movement sensibilities.  How can we render ourselves distinct women with permeable borders, seamlessly merging and diverging from one another, as in the ways our modern and post-modern histories intersect in the work?
