Through abstracted body lines, break dance styling, and operatic song, “Let it fall” imparts a corporeal tale of two people’s relationship with pain. We swallow it, throw it, allow it, and find our beauty within it. The work unifies the artists’ diverse personal histories, into a lush, sensorial saunter down the fine line between suffering and pleasure. Performed by Leo Gayden and Juliet Remmers

Watch a video of the performance.

Presented as part of City in Motion’s 11th annual “A Modern Night at the Folly”

David Ollington review of and we hold tight together

“Cellist Justin Cowart accompanied “and we hold tight together,” a trio by Jane Gotch. Gotch intuitively created a piece with nuance and subtle changes in energy. It hypnotized us with dynamic yet simple relationships between the dancers and a powerful cellist.”
