Trace (2016)

Featuring the dancers Whitney Geldon and Melissa Sanderson, Trace is a 22-minute duet choreographed by Jordan Fuchs that emerges from contact improvisation based partnering scores focusing on under and over surfaces of the body as entry points into qualities of lightness, delicacy and precision. Painstakingly recreated from videotaped improvisation sessions, the duet extends the performers’ perception of touch beyond the confines of the skin and out into space. Composer Andy Russ provides an original sound composition that builds and diminishes sonic distortions like giant ocean swells.
