moments is a multifaceted performance piece of dance, music, and art that has been in development for the past five years. An evening-length dance-theatre work, moments, explores memory, loss, and love. Unfolding through subtle gestural movement and emotionally evocative music moments evokes memories of past relationships, the longing for a closeness once felt, and the challenge of how to move forward through grief. Through a collection of embodied vignettes, moments breaks the stigma around grief by giving audiences a moment to be present to their individual experiences of loss.
Performed by Ali Kenner Brodsky, Scott McPheeters, Jenna Pollack, Jessi Stegall, and Ilya Vidrin, with live and recorded music by MorganEve Swain, graphics by Cyrus Highsmith, costume design by Hertling and fiber artist Alex Davis, set design by Keri King, and lighting design by Andy Russ, moments surveys themes of devotion, remembrance, passing, and grief.
