“A glorious mess that’s shot through with enough rigor, humor, and heart to entertain and incite.” Portland Monthly Mag.

“Turbulence” is one of the most incoherent, messy pieces I’ve ever seen. Yet… it keeps changing. There are often two or more things happening at once, and the spirit that emerges is funny, permissive, unsensational and inquiring.” The New York Times.

”Turbulence (a dance about the economy)” plays with normative disruptions and calculated disregard for generally accepted rules of engagement. A collaborative creation, the work is an experimental hybrid of contemporary dance, improvised happening and political theater; it is a bodily response to economic crisis.

Instigated before Occupy, and engaging questions of debt, value and exchange, Turbulence is intended as both provocation and affirmation of the current global movement.
