What We Do
Who We Are
Driving rock music sets the mood for crossing multiple thresholds as Sanders’ 2009 Threshold uses floating doors and swinging lamps to create a work inspired by the paintings of Dorothea Tanning. Keeping with Tanning’s surrealistic style, sepia toned doors float between dancers constructing a metaphor of the multitude of barriers that one meets in a relationship.

The dancers cook up hard-edged movements by crawling on, hanging from, and ultimately knocking down the doors. All the while, hanging lights, which are swung through space by the dancers, swathe the stage with hallways of light that the dancers tumble through as they breach the next threshold.
