• Self-Leveling (a work in progress)

    Lauren Simpson and Galen Rogers with Emma Strebel Present: Self-Leveling (a work in progress). Self-Leveling is an experiment in light and dark. Choreographers and performers Lauren Simpson and Galen Rogers play inside a visual concept created by visual artist Emma Strebel in which she places laser levels in a dark space where they illuminate thin gestural lines of people and objects moving within. We are seeking moments of mystery and the relief that can come with surrendering to uncertainty. Self-Leveling is supported by the Artist in Residency program at ODC Theater.
