Standing Alone Facing You

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2016)

Choreography: Sara Coffin
2 dancers | 25 minutes

Curious about the equation of two, this is a duet not about two people but a physical and emotional journey that explores the internal and external self. A physical reality paired with a mirror of who we want to be. If you could extract yourself from your own body, what would you tell your present-day self? When life is our stage we discover the path will not go as expected; in the end, our heroes are within. The best way to help yourself is to face your own vulnerability. Life is an improv — just get up and dance.
