Mesmerizing and hypnotic.  Mechanical and incessant.  Colony considers both the human and the herd.  Through an intense and athletic commitment to uniformity, the work is a choreographic investigation of repetition, duration and synchronization where differing states of awareness and being emerge. Implicating the audience as critical to the creation of the performative event, spectators confront their own expectations of seeing and being seen in a shared space.  Distance, proximity, power and vulnerability are at play in this dance where your role as watcher is balanced by the tension of being watched.
