The Gray One refers to a collective place of constant fluctuation—a place between the definitive black and white—where tonalities, a spectrum of textures, light, and sound emerge. This place of deterritorialization and nomadic empathy acts as a starting point or hub of mutual understanding, inspiration, and unrestricted ideas.
This piece was originally conceived, and performed at Movement Research at Judson Church, in NYC in April and May 2010 as part of the Movement Research Artist in Residence program. In Turku, The Gray One was co-produced with The Regional Dance Center of Western Finland.
