The multi-disciplinary collaboration with poet Anne Carson and sculptor Peter Cole, STACKS explores the nature of collapse as manifested in human anatomy, written language, and everyday objects. The project challenges traditional expectations of what a dance, poem or sculpture can be. STACKS was created with an original text by MacArthur award-winning writer Anne Carson, who performs live at each presentation of the piece.
