This live, immersive dance performance explores the many incarnations of the title, “daughter”, and how this fluid yet ultimately fixed category shows up in moving, living bodies. Inspired by the chemical definition of “daughter” - that is, the product of an element’s radioactive decay - we will examine growth and decline, celebration and mourning, and conformity and rejection. As long time friends, Stephanie and I are also, quite simply, happy to be dancing together.
