Installation

Installation

Part choreographed dance performance and part interactive installation, each installation bridges the gap between dancer and audience by merging the two in the most literal sense.

Audience members are invited to move freely within the same space in which the dancers are performing. The physical elements of light, space, sound, and movement are all here, but experienced through the unpredictable and surprising conditions created by the live performance of the 16-member Cedar Lake company.

Each installation is modular and can be tailor-made to fit any space.
