A right-angled object who lost her faith in being upright is a meditative drift through parallel worlds, or a flattened universe, where past, present, and future exist simultaneously. Predominated by a belief in zeroes and ones, magic and sacred geometry, angles and 8 counts, the dance draws its voice from desperate collective movement practices including color guard, Zumba, aerobics, cheerleading, 19th century Shaker dances and contra dance.
