Being/With combines custom technology and live performance to explore themes of separation and connection, loss, and embodiment. Intimate audiences in two venues in separate neighborhoods are united via technology and guided through duets and conversations with their “partners,” who initially are strangers to them. Led by choreographer Nichole Canuso and a team of dancers and designers, the work facilitates a shared experience that connects participants across divisions of geography, culture, and personal history.

Estimated Artist Fee: $20,000/performance; $20,000/week.
