NextLOOK: Meghan Abadoo: Gatekeepers (OFF-SITE)
Gatekeepers/All that you touch, You Change is immersive dance-theater that explores the roles of artists in communities as everyday gatekeepers. A gatekeeper in a social system decides which of a certain commodity – materials, goods, and information – may enter the system. The gatekeeper’s choices are a complex web of influences, preferences, motives and common values.
With transformational dance dialogue as the container, Gatekeepers/All that you touch, You Change seeks to unearth this web of influences, preferences, motives and common values from the perspectives of womyn choreographers of the African diaspora.
