surfacing created and performed by Christine Bennett and DeAnna Pellecchia
“Christine Bennett and DeAnna Pellecchia…slide while standing, sitting, and even flipping over. The dancers' expressions are intense, their repetitions almost obsessive.” – Christine Temin, The Boston Globe
Inspired by the birth of her son and his environment to that point in life, Christine Bennett again works with the element of water in SURFACING. Here dancers Christine Bennett and DeAnna Pellecchia dive, spin, slide and hydroplane across 20-foot spans of marley-covered stage. Repetition and momentum create the rippling undercurrent that powers the dancers across the surface between air and water.
