“Zion” investigates parallels within the structures of religion and technology. The work consist of two dancers that are embedded in a world of mixed media consisting of elaborate projections and environmental sound scores that creates a fictitious Eden. These fearless yet vulnerable bodies work through an imagination-soaked utopia. Zion is directed by Bree Breeden with performances by Breeden and collaborator Kathleen Kelley and with visual/media production support by Proteo Media + Performance.
