After Image Collaboration

After Image is an experimental collaborative work between choreographer, Joanna Mendl Shaw, and visual artist, Erin Curry, addressing the territory between dance and drawing for 2016 University of Florida SwampDance Fest. The content of the performance is informed by S.A. Andrée failed arctic expedition via hot air balloon in 1897. Appropriate to the collaborative process are intertwined themes of terra incognita, navigation, hubris, risk, and failure where the stage/drawing and dancers/markmakers engage in dialogue where one cannot by left unmarked by the other.
