This project includes a web component:
The Roads We Walk Together

The Roads We Walk Together was originally conceived as a live dance performance with open public rehearsals at 1065 Mission. When San Francisco entered shelter-in-place in March 2020, the four dancers shifted their collaboration to Zoom. The movement, photography, audio, video, and personal narratives from these experimental sessions became the online experience the project exists as today. It was accompanied by a video installation at 1065 Mission in San Francisco that was viewable from June 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021.

Available from 5pm to 5am, The Roads We Walk Together is a series of vignettes transmitted from the dancers’ homes, inviting visitors to pause, breathe, and take a walk through moments outside of time: through landscapes that rise and fall and disappear with sunrise.

Come alone, and meet the dancers in the same rooms in which you dream, toss and turn, and meet the morning light.
