In a distant galaxy, a newly minted human creation in search of a soul. A clash of technology and dance, when movement becomes sound becomes light becomes image becomes life. Grace creates a poetic language of imagery and light that reveals the dancing body in non-physical form. A metaphor for the ‘real’ world, where each action has cause & effect, we are the gods and orchestrators of our own and each others lives.

“…an ever shifting Rorschach test; combined with Laughlin’s energy-abundant steps, they have an impact that’s as hallucinatory as it is hypnotic…the science behind Grace is truly at the forefront, both in terms of computer-generated effects and their use in dance…Grace fuses it wholly and seamlessly throughout…this is no conventional dance duet.”
