We still have each other: Island Moving Company’s ‘Together in this Dream — Dancing Through the Digital Divide

March 6, 2021

By Kathryn Boland of Dance Informa

COVID has us not able to hug certain loved ones, precluded from breaking bread with good friends and barred from experiencing creative acts in community. For many dancers, partnering and sharing sweaty space has become moving together in a Zoom meeting or — even more disconnected — through Instagram Live. What does human connection become when we can’t physically connect with one another, something our very biology leads us to crave? What is that experience in our body? What truths are we called to reaffirm through that experience?

Island Moving Company’s Together in This Dream — Dancing Through the Digital Divide wrestled with these questions through its unique contemporary ballet idiom. The Newport, RI-based company streamed the show live from The Gamm Theater (Warwick, RI), with COVID protocols in place while audience members enjoyed the show safely from their home. The program included favorite repertory works as well as exciting premieres, all which could uniquely contribute to those questions of community and connection through this highly digital, socially-distanced time.
