Pretonically Oriented v.3 looks deeply at creative processes and products, proposing the creation of a dance work as a metaphor for the creation of identity. Formative experiences, statements of self, the rehearsal process, and performances are all juxtaposed to have a deeper look at what things are and how they came to be that way.
Featuring: James Graham, Erin Kraemer, and Catherine Newman with direction by Charles Slender.
