Structured as a series of vignettes, STAKE looks into the ways in which we re-arrange our circumstances to better suit our lives. Our new arrangements can be revealing, shedding light on what we truly value. Inspired additionally by the physical architecture of fences and gates as barriers and openings, the six dancers encounter scenarios they must compromise around and adjust to. This work exists in a place both ethereal and authentic, involving continuously changing moments of comfort, unease, humor, loss, surprise, monotony and beauty. Original Score by Max Hershenow and by Chris Conway.
