currently in process, SEARCH PARTY is a multi-phase, energetically explosive dance work the follows a group of women as they set and test their limits. It is a communal investigation of boundaries and limits - asking "what do we have?" vs. "what do we need?"; what is expected vs. what are we capable of; and looking at the effects of designated space vs. free space. Set in the round, sometime on a dancefloor, sometimes not, this Search Party organizes to look for what has been lost, what has been missing, or what has been hiding.
