Orchid: Dormancy and Becoming is an interdisciplinary dance and performance work by Mitsu Salmon with a soundscape by La Spacer.
The work will be performed outside and interacts with the environment in which it is presented.

Through dance, electronic dance music, and lectures; the piece investigates the history and symbolism of orchids as connected to imperialism, sexuality, and the environment.

Dramaturgy by Christine Shallenberg. This project was made possible through the support of the Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Award, residencies through Sitka Center of Art and Ecology, Ragdale, Ruth Page, and Columbia Dance Center.
