‘To Be Two’

Direction by Megan Young
With Performers Rebecca Burcher, Julia Smith, Emily Thompson
Misty Luminais, Dramaturge
Sound Design, Megan Young

An immersive movement experience constructed by audience with performers, ‘To Be Two’ considers the tenuous space between where embodiment ends and all others begin. It mirrors the messy and muddled construction of self in real life and honors the difficult task of being, together. Artist Megan Young extends the considerations of French philosopher, Luce Irigaray, as she explores intimacy in a postdigital age. This developing work takes a decidedly personal approach to Young’s view of choreography as a form of system design.Developed with support from Playhouse Square Center’s LAUNCH New Works Development program and presented as Work-in-progress in Chicago’s DCASE SpinOff Series 2016.
