'the whispers in the walls' explores the question: "what is hidden?" and was inspired by the duality of what is seen and unseen- or as much philosophy refers to as in the light, and in the shadows. Through a series of improvisational exercises, writing prompts, and physical exploration, we gained an understanding of the mystery of the unknown, and came into relationship both personally and artistically, with what that might be. This work was choreographed for the BodyVox JAG (Junior Artist Generator) Company in the 2017/2018 company year.
