Evoking a strong sense of unexpected loss, Black Out examines the fragility of existence as well as the serendipity of life.  We watch, from above, as thousands of black granulated fragments transform the dancers’ world into a moving, pictorial composition, that jars as it shifts in response to the light, sound, and movement.  A work that contemplates the randomness of mortality in a world of genocide, disease, epidemics, and senseless violence.   Photo credit: Philippe Weissbrodt
