PLAYGROUND material: layered motivation - dynamic action

PLAYGROUND material inhabits a playful, fun space reminiscent of our early experiences with movement. By recalling childhood memories and games, STAYCEE PEARL dance project compares and contrasts the uninhibited motion of children and the form of a professionally-trained dancer. Using journaling, improvisation, and collaborative discussion, the troupe created a youthful world that reflects the varied ages, backgrounds, and experiences of its members.

Premiere: May 2014, the Alloy Studios, Pittsburgh.
