Walking LA|(Sur)facing the City

Projects

This multi-disciplinary choreography evolved from Sara’s two and a half year research project of walking in Los Angeles. It considers the perspective of the city through the lens of the pedestrian through a series of photographs collected on the walks. The photographs are projected onto various surfaces of the museum space, becoming frames for the bodies of the dancers who interact with them through movement, writing, erasing and tracing.
