This past fall, a group of dancers gathered in Central Long Beach for a special performance. WHO IS SHE? A collaborative project with contemporary dance and a multimedia installation that incorporates a 10′ tall artist’s book with four double-page spreads and animated projections. The book’s pages contain images of an anonymous1910 woman exerciser extracted from an early 20th Century publication that has inspired this choreographic and artistic collaboration.
