Of This Body
OF THIS BODY is an interdisciplinary dance theater project conceived, choreographed and performed by Paula Josa-Jones in collaboration with her design team. Each of the three dances integrates projection and set design and interactive media to create visual/sensory worlds that draw the audience deeply into the physical and emotional worlds of the dance. All three dances explore liminal states of being: ambiguous, disorienting moments when we find ourselves poised on a threshold between one world and another - times of being caught in a maelstrom of events outside our control, evoking primal questions of identity, expression and place in the world.

The projections are a seamless element of the choreography, another character in the space. The digital world weaves through the piece alongside the performer acting as another guide. It transports the audience to various settings, in and out of literal space, shifting the perception of time. The content ranges from rugged landscapes to unique structures, metaphorical imagery to a distinctly present secondary character. The world of the video illustrates the inner reality of the performer on stage. The two bodies dance with each other. The figure in the video fades into and out of the various settings in constant conversation with the live performer.
