Video 3/8/2019: Coldness & Lightness

Coldness & Lightness features eight dancers who move through a tenuous landscape. Created over a 10-year time span by Ashley Thorndike-Youssef and Peter V. Swendsen, Coldness & Lightness is a visually astute composition that embodies the dimensions of coldness and lightness, and their polarities in sound, visual design, and movement.
