  Sap.    Direction- EKGROW, choreographed in collaboration with performer, Sarah Sandoval.  Sound- Richard Wagner, Calmsound and Carter Tutti Void  A body, post-accident, creates high drama in "Sap." Two female dancers reveal, through extreme emotional contrast, the body's destructive capacity for blurring our states of consciousness. Warped realities, self-medicating techniques, highly constructed states of being, and the power to create an exit from an unsavory experience guides them separately towards transformation and death. It's a call to presence and hope as well a way to remove, at all costs, the invisible entities that cling to ourselves post collision.  photo: Kristian Punturere
