Skimming the Surface

Skimming the Surface

Inspired by trauma and emotional wounds, “Skimming the Surface” features four women begin at what appears to be the end. The work’s action centers around a table and 24 knives engaged in precarious acts used to skim the emotional surface in an attempt to reveal a root life altering moment. The piece is the foundation of Dance Entropy’s “Skimming The Surface, Expressive Movement” workshops, led by Dance Entropy’s Artistic Director Valerie Green, that serve adult populations that may be overcoming diverse forms of trauma. This performance will be immediately followed by an open discussion between the audience and the artists on art and expressive movement as a mode of healing. Free, RSVP required at
