I aim to create work that makes us think about our mentality as a society, and how we interact with one another and especially with ourselves. “Shift” is a study on how we can work and blend as a community with one common goal. If one drops then the other moves. If one moves too fast then the other moves. This work is about community not overpowering itself but rather working as one.
In the world we live in today there is a constant pull to get to the other side. Moving together and working together as a team becomes more and more difficult with the ever growing tasks we need to accomplish. The objective is quite simple “Shift” as a team but do not move from the point. Balance is what is needed to get the job done and hold the energy and synergy within it’s circle.
SHIFT was performed at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival on April 6th, 2018.
