The Weight by Wilder Project

Battery Dance Festival: Wednesday (Performance 3 of 7)

I had to do some research after the show, to fully understand this choreography. There’s apparently a film version of this work, set in the “raw beauty of the northern Maine wilderness.” The pebble stones, movements that (I presume) resemble splashing into a tidal marsh, and even the title make so much more sense. Only if I had these accompanying visuals/description during the show!
