The Space Movement Project’s Refraction is an ongoing improvisational score cultivated over six years in practice. Performers continually submit to the roles of witness and mover; allowing a landscape of textural shifts to manipulate both their impulses and experience. The work features an original sound design developed in collaboration with Chicago-based musician Patrick Stonehouse. Featuring Chicago-based artists Kim Baker, Elise Butterfield, Stefany Cotton, Sofía Gabriel, Anne Kasdorf and Leah Raffanti.
Choreographed by The Rooted Space Company co-director Stefany Cotton, Let the Record Show is an immersive, multi-sensory full-length work. Within its inaugural process, the emerging company has unearthed familiarity in the unexpected and shared experiences that translate to a journey of hilarity, poignancy, and discovery. Featuring Chicago-based artists Stephanie Anderson, Mia Barnett, Tina Diaz, Ella Dorman, Ashley Johnson, and Stephen Patterson.
