A multi-media duet exploring relationship, Blue Room is a collaboration between Chinese artist Dai Jian and Russian-born Elena Demyanenko, recent alumni of Trisha Brown Dance Company. This evening of individual and paired works will unfold as a dialogue through myriad possible intricate and detailed existences. Two independent mind-bodies with different backgrounds, behaviors, languages and cultures suture together, provoking a third presence unique to each performance.
