FAR AWAY, SO CLOSE
Far Away, So Close performance explores our deep human desire to be connected and engaged with each other, and yet remain individual and distinct. Playing with notion of tension and flexibility as inherent qualities of our collective psychic the piece looks at both beauty and struggle in human relationships.
