STRANGER LOVER DREAMER
Building Modern Dance Ships and sending them out to Sea.We are seeking our truths as lovers, friends, strangers, soulmates, enemies, scene-stealers and exhausted, relentless moving bodies. We unravel through isolation, relationship, and community as we find realities and dreams that rarely hit the surface. We say yes to everything.
