Starting with the assumption that the dancer is a medium for the unknown, The Multiple explores the ghostly presence of actual and imagined beings, and invites the murmurings of past, present and future into the space of performance. A solo edges into a duet, into what is seen and unseen, and into the estrangements and intimacies within and between people and place.
