copperhead (2008)

A dance/performance work exceedingly intimate and larger-than-life, copperhead probes the bonds forged during violence and imagines victim, aggressor and place as three strands of a braid, forever interwoven by shared experience. A disquieting meditation on the social experience of personal trauma.
