   dances on untamed ground

Nomads is an evening-length dance performance that explores the human-made forces that shape our habits, interactions, and patterns of movement—and the new possibilities that emerge in their absence. How does the constructed environment impact our understanding of one another, and of ourselves? Who do we become outside of our cities and highways?


Imagining an alternate mode of being human, Nomads is inspired by the desire to engage the moment of composition as it unfolds. Ensemble members forge the raw materials of self, space, and imagination in real time, offering the audience a transparent view of the characters' essential humanity and elemental intelligence.


Accompanied by a soundscape from local musicians Serge Gubelman and Erin Jorgensen, as well as Virginia-based sound artists Stephen Vitiello and Molly Berg (courtesy of 12k), Nomads invites the audience on a journey to discover who we are on untamed ground.
