Amber Sloan and Leslie Cuyjet
Amber Sloan premieres APART|TOGETHER, a Dada inspired dance performance utilizing objet trouvé to represent a physical manifestation of the emotional baggage we carry. Performed by Nik Owens and Amber Sloan, the work explores isolation, intimacy, and division. The dancers use found objects as barriers to partner, allowing for safe contact and connection even when separated.
Amber shares the evening with Leslie Cuyjet, a former schoolmate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
This work is made possible through a grant from "Dance on the Lawn: Montclair Dance Festival's Emerging Commissioned New Jersey Choreographer” initiative.

Tracker comes upon itself through evoking shared history and tracing memories held within. The paired bodies create, hold, dissolve, and recompose forms in a continuous cycle of support, absence, and return; slipping between past, present, and future selves.
This is a live performance that will be live-streamed, tickets here are for the livestream.
