Commissioned by The Empty Bottle Presents + Jane Beachy for their annual performance party, The Itch #2 featured a mass ensemble of 30+ performers who took over the whole dance floor, bandstand and balcony of a vintage ballroom. Inspired by DANCE MARATHONS + party culture, this piece reveled in the ever-awkward and joyfully-contagious experience of gracelessly, PUBLIC social dancing.
