I Just Want to See You Underwater
Motley Dance
Choreographer/ Director: Elisabeth Motley
Dancers: Meredith Fages, Lea Fulton, Josselyn Levinson, Elisabeth Motley
Live Music: Colonna Sonora- Brady Bagger, Christian Serramalera, James Sparber
Visuals/ Projection: Victoria Masters

Inspired by a watercolor-like hallucination Motley experienced while suffering from a brain disease, Underwater has evolved over the year into a performance event that examines compound levels of disorientation; considering the social and physiological ramifications incurred when one experiences any form of confusion. In a shadowy, dream-like environment the artists' incorporate extensive, tactile materials. Baby powder covers the body of a dancer, while her movements frenetically engage with the white, powdery puffs. Hard, white beans are poured from pitchers onto another dancer on the floor while she skims her arms and legs across the ground, propelling the beans in various directions. Both sonic and visually resounding, Underwater features live music from instrumental band Colonna Sonora, projected visuals from Victoria Masters, and both rigorous and surreal choreography from Motley Dance.
