About this show

Drawing inspiration from the ancient building technique of the title, Rammed Earth explores architecture as a fundamental, subliminal force intervening in the human narrative. Tere O'Connor looks to concepts of adaptability in contemporary architecture as a source. The new evening length work brings into evidence the shifting layers of architectural reference in dance as the dancers create a tumultuous liquid space in constant evolution. Rammed Earth is created in collaboration with O'Connor's longtime artistic partners - lighting designer Brian MacDevitt and composer James Baker - and is performed by his four versatile dancers - Hilary Clark, Heather Olson, Matthew Rogers and Christopher Williams.
