Beyond the Normal Sledding Hill is about the misbegotten excursion of two platonic lovers as they look for the perfect hill for sledding. The piece examines inter-personal dynamics against the backdrop of a wintery landscape. At times humorous, others quietly disastrous, a simple and thoughtful duet unfolds. The sledders, Will Rawls and Katie Workum navigate both their relationship and a trek through the crushing yet sublime snow and cold. The dance vocabulary ranges from highly physical and technical to pedestrian: the flailing arms of a snow angel are valued as much as the clean line of port de bras. Join them on this re-imagined nature walk, as they put their physical and emotional survival skills to the test.
