GLASSlands (2016) is an evening-length work which explores proximity, visibility, technology and connection in a culture of ever increasing emotional and intimate distances. Choreographed by Printz Dance Project Artistic Director Stacey Printz, GLASSlands features set design by Sean Riley. The set pieces are large, transparent pod-like structures, or “bubble rooms” that inhabit the performance space, providing a plastic world that dancers populate and explore. As human, face-to-face interaction is dismantled and technology-driven encounters become more pervasive, GLASSlands explores how our ability to communicate and connect is impacted.
