Whither Goest Thou is an evening-length performative environment that uses movement (dance vocabulary) to inform its content, and text (theater vocabulary) to inform the overall form/structure. The result will be a textual and movement-based landscape that will transport its audience one thousand fictional miles – it’s a trip, wherein bodies function as the constant outside-the-window movement, and information must be gathered from fragments, from the blaring radio of the conductor as they hustle wordlessly past, the know-it-all fellow passenger whose ideas may or may not have any actual basis in fact.
