The choreographic duo are using Horn’s signature textural, whimsical set design as their launching point. Leveraging a variety of materials that the audience might consider waste, Hance and Horn are weaving into the performance a message of hope: that we can- through a willingness to see things differently and a relentless commitment to innovation – transform the mess we’ve created in our planet into something beautiful and purposeful.
“I watched video of birds that used discarded zip-ties to build their nests. I was so inspired by their ability to re-imagine this unnatural material and integrate it into their environment in a meaningful way, “ says Hance, Frame Dance founder and artistic director.
