About the Work:
“The Architecture of Proximity” is movement, architecture, sound, light and video. This immersive performance experience explores the relationship between physical spaces and the psychological, emotional and physical effects space can have on the body. Collaborators David Engelhard composed an original sound score, Megan Marvin created set decor, Kryssy Wright lighting design and Kat Sullivan created a new media video installation.
