Force Fields

Force Fields is a collaborative dance performance created and produced by artists H. Gene Thompson and Ru Emmons. The duo uses movement and wearable sculptures to perform transformations and protection routines seeking ways to unstick themselves from capitalism in a physical and energetic way. Using imagery of portals and transformations, they explore the human experience of capitalism and work through a narrative where there is a reclamation of personal power through energetic protection. National tour spring 2019.
