Experiencing Interruptions?

There Alone (Baker score)

What happens to us in the moments of our lives when we go in one direction instead of another? How small a motion would create waves in our lives?
‘There Alone’ takes a magical realism turn and asks: What happens if we split apart at that moment, and became two?
And how does that sound with two scores?
Version 1 score by Elizabeth A. Baker

Director Statement

I create imaginative dance films and choreography in which visual imagery and rhythm takes precedence. The subject that engages me most deeply is the space within us and between us, and the theater of that negative space played out over time.
