Fiction is one of the most powerful ways that we absorb societal cues that can shape our character. How many characters do you carry with you long after, maybe even years after, you’ve finished reading their story? How do characters, often very different from us, stay vital in our bodies and experiences?
Inscribed, a site-specific dance theater piece for three performers will follow a journey of personal revelation through literature. Using movement and constructed artifacts, the performance will move through stacks of the Central Library and will end in Kirk Hall.
Viewers become participants as they encounter the performers in the library and choose their vantage point. They can watch the performance unfold from the point of view of a single performer or move at their own pace between the three performers. All three performers will converge in Kirk hall for the final section of the work.
