About the Show

This past spring and summer, we adapted Dastak: I Wish You Me, our new, evening-length work about home, belonging, and borders, to nature and public places. The Farsi word dastak means knockings, and the dance traces the knockings of global injustices on our hearts through four sections: EarthWaterFire, and Air.

Until we can meet you in live performance, we offer the spirit of those sections in four surreal dance films.

  • These dance performances were filmed at several outdoor locations in town. How might the experience of dance feel different out in nature, as opposed to being on a stage?
  • Home, belonging and borders are themes explored in these dances. What do they mean to you? Have your ideas about these themes changed at all, over the last year?

Children should be 10 years of age or older to view this performance.
