this is a blank page. a story, in motion is a dance-theater work inspired by such questions as “how would one create a self-portrait in dance?” Pearson explores themes surrounding partnership, sexuality, identity, comfort zones, and scarcity vs. abundance. He strings together tales from his childhood with musical vignettes and social commentary, and he examines how humans aspire to expand their arenas of comfort while simultaneously seeking fulfillment inside their present situation.
