A Solo Dance by Levi Gonzalez
April 29-May 1
(Friday-Saturday, 8pm and Sunday, 6pm)
In his solo, intimacy,  Levi Gonzalez attempts to bring the practice of making into the moment  of live performance. In constructing material for this work, he  prioritizes instinct over concept, cultivating sensitivity to what  resonates with him on a visceral level. By exploring the idiosyncrasies  of his own interests in movement and performance, he builds a structure  that exposes his own personal relationship to the form. Often framing  the action with language, he establishes a directness with the spectator  that resists metaphor, while still leaving space for the engagement of  the imagination. Ultimately the work examines the intimacy of the  relationship between performer and audience, and how we navigate this  shared experience. The solo is being developed in collaboration with  dramaturg Susan Mar Landau.
