Sarah Parker and Continuum Dance Theater delve into the depths of human yearning in this world premier of Objects of DESIRE. Part dance performance, part psychological experiment, Continuum Dance Theater has combed the streets of local communities to explore the root causes love, success, comfort and pain.
About the Process
After a year of city-wide research and countless hours in the studio in movement, Continuum’s cast each take on a character constructed from the company’s personal interviews with community members. Their stories unfold in a single evening through the fusion of dance and theater performance art. Diving into the human psyche and deconstructing social archetypes, Continuum follows the manifestations of drive, exploring what makes us tick, how we are motivated as individuals and as a society and ultimately what addictions can take hold when the line is crossed from striving towards a goal to allowing your objectives to take hold of your life.
