Through a series of provocative intimate encounters, Close & Personal re-attaches our daily lives to the things we hold most dear. In an age of severe disconnection and systemic violence how do we transform our collective sorrow and anger to imagine a way forward? 
This new site specific performance creates a moving communal experience integrating installation + dance + new music + laughter + film + food.

Check out our process videos & indiegogo campaign !

This season for the first time ever, we are releasing videos documenting our movement brainstorms, improvisations and collaborative conversations, and we are sharing them with YOU!  This is a unique opportunity to peek into our artistic process.

We'll be posting a new video on our indiegogo campaign page every few weeks so you can see how our show is progressing, and, if you feel inspired, contribute to the process by making a gift.  All gifts, large or small, help us reach our goal of raising $600 and go towards supporting this exciting collaborative project working to affect positive change and build community.
