From the choreographer: Alice Klock 

November 28, 2018

Alice Klock’s world premiere for danc(e)volve, Fold Me, centers around the idea that we could all exist in different versions across dimensions of time and space. Fold Me plays with the idea of folding the fabric of time and space so that these different versions of self could meet up, and what would happen if they did. We sat down with Alice to learn more about her inspiration, and her quirky dance style.
