Topia: The Something In Between
Topia: The Something In Between is a live adaptation of the 15 minute dance film directed by Jessie Lee Thorne & Justin Thorne.
This evening length work brings to life the internal worlds into which we fall as we attempt to process experiences of pain and trauma. The work digs into the human response to retreat, dissociate, and sit alone in our dark places; the refusal to let others in. It looks at the necessity of vulnerability, of community, of holding each other in pain and joy, and the affect that can have on the individual as well as those we let in.
