zoe I juniper
BeginAgain questions the multiplicity of self, memory and perspective through two parallel solos weaving in and out of each other. Juniper Shuey’s futuristic design explores new technological methods juxtaposed against Zoe Scofield’s intense, primal choreography, featuring Scofield and duet partner Ariel Freedman (Batsheva Dance Company, Kidd Pivot), triggers a raw tableaux of movement and stage designs. BeginAgain reveals an intrinsic truth about oneself and the aspects of humanity that unite us all.
BeginAgain features gorgeous, large-scale set design from paper artist Celeste Cooning, sound design by Julian Martlew, and music from Morgan Henderson (Blood Brothers, Fleet Foxes).
