The White Rush of Experience
September 1 through September 29, 2017
Reception: Friday, September 15 | 6 - 8 p.m.
Gallery talk at 6:30 p.m.

The White Rush of Experience examines the elements of desire, independence and sexuality that are latent in the act of dance. Traditionally thought of in classical terms, these pieces reflect the inner psyche while lost in the act of unchoreographed moments of movement that allow for physical, and mental abandon, spiritual release.

On the dance floor the female form is often viewed as an object of desire. By emphasizing the solo dancer in abstraction, the figure is given agency, the body becomes language.
