Against a mesmerizing backdrop of an animated painting-in-process by artist Jackie Kazarian, this dance expresses the nature of water as a force of destruction that reshapes landscape and habitat. Taking images and stories related to Hurricane Katrina of 2005 and the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004, Overflow considers the response of bodies to a larger, massive force - actively through rescue or isolated as when the body is being overwhelmed. The guiding metaphors are water as agent that can re-configure narrative on a molecular, geographic, and emotional level.
