Group Motion's Improv Lab invites exploring structures and concepts of
dance and musical improvisation. With all the pressures and distractions
today that drive us further apart, when and how do we connect? In dreams?
In past lives? Through story? Meditate on connection through this informal
showing of improvised dance and spoken words.

The Blue Road by Stone/Debot/Ellie Goudie-Averill and
Beau Hancock
Our research for this piece began two years ago with initial investigations
into a specific movement score called Blue Highways. The name for the score
takes its name, and its cue, from a book written by William Least Heat
Moon, in which he catalogues his adventures through the least traveled
byways in rural America. In this travelogue, Least Heat Moon navigates back
roads in his converted camper van, charting a course less traveled. His
title alludes to the fact that on old atlases of America the central
highways were demarcated in red and the smaller, less convenient highways
colored blue. This purposeful navigation by Least Heat Moon through the
less obvious but potentially more rewarding pathways mirrors our own desire
for this dance. He gained a new appreciation for the plurality of his
cultural experience, and we are gaining a new appreciation for the
undiscovered potential in our own physicality.

Heaviness/Lightness by Lyons and Tigers (Darcy Lyons)
and stb x at
Heaviness/Lightness is a piece directed by Darcy Lyons and co-created and
performed live by the dance and percussion duo STB x AT (Sean Thomas-Boyt
and Andy Thierauf). In this experimental work, the performers interact and
explore the varying definitions and connotations of lightness and heaviness
through movement, live sound, and the interaction with Newton’s Cradle desk
