Every performer knows there is no such thing as the perfect performance — in fact, there is no such thing as the same performance: anything that happens onstage shares with life the condition of never happening again. Choreographer Christy Funsch highlights the ephemeral nature of dance and the performing arts in her work-always-in-progress, she's near she's now she's nowhere, exhibited with five dancers at four times in three locations. With a sonic sculpture by Tamara Albaitis that creates a "sea kelp forest of sound" to aid the dancers in their exploration of memory and perception, the piece considers the effect of physical and emotional presence within a given time and place. Funsch, who has been working on the piece since its first showing in May, describes it as "deliberately under-produced" and meant to highlight process over product. Contemplate being present.
