"[EmSpace Dance] demonstrated the sublimely heady heights to which contemporary dance can raise one’s spirits."

You & You & You (2005/2008)

You and You and You is a stark, thoughtful, and sensual meditation on a triangular relationship. In this dreamlike dance video, the characters are exquisitely physically intimate, while remaining emotionally guarded. They physically manipulate one another until they find moments of comfort, but an underlying sense of dissatisfaction prevents them from settling into anything for long. This 2008 video was adapted from the dance of the same name. The original stage piece was longer and was premiered in 2005 in Intersection for the Arts' Hybrid Project at YBCA Forum in San Francisco.
