While following a similar narrative as the longer live dance piece, ILLUMINATING THE CHANDELIER focuses specifically on the interior monologue of a woman in isolation who experiences dissociated, dreamlike feelings and has trouble connecting to the world around her. Through layers of imagery and acts of repetition, the work explores the contrasting ideas of impermanence and the irrevocable, especially in the context of what we as a society are all going through in this moment. — Heidi Duckler
