    W E A T H E R is a new collaboration between dancemaker MaryGrace Phillips and artist-sculptor Justin Rabideau. It is a full-length live dance performance that happens within the world of sculptural installation. With an ensemble cast of 6 dancers, W E A T H E R looks at our bodies’ relationships as landscape with their own systems of chaotic transformation.
    ___________________________
    Numerous cultures before ours attributed the weather’s unpredictability to gods, and their routine rites were a way of appealing to (or thanking) the gods' favor. While our modern day Western rituals look different, we still possess a lack of control and an inability to predict the weather’s future past a certain point; and human survival still depends on the weather’s good graces. Chaos: the spontaneous unpredictability of forces that work towards their own attractors, forces that grow with surprising speed and scale. Though we are examining weather, we may as well be examining human nature. This work is research into the liminal line between forces of change and those forces which act to create these changes.
