More info on the project:  Objective I

“Objective I” is a split bill performance and editing collaboration between Shana Simmons of Shana Simmons Dance (Pittsburgh, PA) and Erin Carlisle Norton of The Moving Architects (NYC/NJ).  Each will each develop a new work, both exploring the ideas of “placement” and “displacement.”  Despite coming from the same root, this will manifest into two completely separate conceptual works.  After the development of the works, each choreographer will edit the others’ piece.  All four pieces will be presented at Gibney Dance, NYC for a public showing to discuss the process of editing, to receive feedback from a panel, and ultimately to choose which versions will be presented in a December full production performance through Kelly Strayhorn Theater at Dance Alloy in Pittsburgh, PA.  Along with the “Objective I” portion of the program, repertory works from both companies will be presented.
