"Shift" is a series of four duets between Shannon Mockli and collaborators Dakota Bouher, Karen Daly, Sarah Ebert, and Carlos Rasmussen.
This project is informed by improvisation and, beyond being a performance challenge for Mockli, interrogates potential meanings that emerge when we develop a dance that considers the wholeness of each collaborator coming to the table—who we are as individuals, our lives, processes, and practices. How do we create a structure for dancing in which we can both thrive in challenge and delight?
Each work is a question of presence for Mockli and the dancers and illuminates process as part of the performance in intentional ways to invite the emergence of larger metaphor. Additional contributors are sound artist, Jon Bellona, and sound/video artist Markus Johnson.
