Aphotic ( is an interactive dance and digital video performance, integrating experimental animation with motion tracked, live choreography. Created site-specific to the Galapagos Art Space and visualized through a series of five video projectors, a vacillating environment will surround the audience. Broadening the existing techniques of dance and motion tracking, this performance provides a groundbreaking, surrealist approach to visual narrative.

Following three generations of women as they struggle to survive in an ever-changing environment, three walls of projection will provide the backdrop for a mesmerizing story told through a montage of movement and light. The performance includes elements of aerial, contortion, modern dance and martial arts from some of New York City's most innovative and adventurous performers, and a sprinkling of surprises throughout the night.

Aphotic is both a benefit and a precursor for a short film, "Development" (visit Development's process website here), starting production late this fall.
