Los Angeles, California
In collaboration with Evoke Dance Company
“Line” relies on surrounding infrastructure and the human body to create dynamic geometric elements. Twins Jeniffer and Justine Hsu, directors of Evoke Dance Company, dance with elastic bands that represent the tension, strength, connections, and divisions these sisters have built between one another over time. The Hsu sisters work together to construct their abstract notion of “home” both physically and mentally throughout their “Line”performance, creating a human scale linework drawing through their movement.
