Walker Commission
World Premiere

“Complete possession of the dancer by the dance is a rare sight, but it is one that can make watching a [Thorson] performance a near-transcendent experience for the audience too.” —New York Times

In Heaven (2009), choreographic mix-master Morgan Thorson and the sublime slowcore music of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker (LOW) drew audiences into a meditation on the ambiguities of perfection. In this new commission, Thorson returns with Sparhawk and a brain trust of collaborators for an intervention on Western dance culture. Resuscitating power as tenderness, Public Loveembraces reciprocal touch as an intimate alternative to might and control. Co-created with dance artists Jessica Cressey, Non Edwards, Allie Hankins, Sam Johnson, Alanna Morris-Van Tassel, and Valerie Oliveiro, the work explores consent, action, agency, and connection as a balm for our divisive times.
