“To me there’s a very exciting interplay between the possibility that anything might happen and the realization that everything is already happening.” – Jaime Maseda of No Face Performance Group

An experiment in cultivating intimacy.

A playful interrogation of the tension between stillness and motion, minimalism and dynamism, silence and pop music, THE TOP invites audiences into an open, direct, and intimate relationship with its three performers. Taking cues from pop and minimalist music, the choreography plays with viewers’ sense of time and expectation, creating a world of nonverbal exchange that is restrained and charged with possibility. With grace, humor, and style, THE TOP takes a wry look at the co-existence of public and private presence, blurring the lines between dancing for others and dancing for ourselves.
