Alyssa Dillard: We Didn't Know What To Do, So We Danced

"We Didn't Know What To Do, So We Danced"

A site specific performance to familiarize ourselves with collaboration and joy after a long period of isolation.  Dancers and musicians explore their relationships to each other while rotating throughout the Invalidovna grounds. The closeness and distance that is possible in a space. The ways we interact with our bodies after a period of distance. This musical movement jam explores these moments and the relationship between music and the body. Audience is welcome to participate as a dancer or musician as well as observe and enjoy.
