Shifting Lines, an inter-cultural solo dance (contemporary belly dance), is an interdisciplinary collaborative work. As a site-specific/gallery piece, it is influenced by and adapts to the space.

Shifting Lines interweaves dance, lighting, music and film with space. The voices ebb and flow into hauntingly beautiful abstract impressions. Provocations based in rhizome theory, obscure and transform the materiality and immateriality of a human form by conflating shadow and the body, maintaining, multiplying and fragmentating the One and moving fluid centers and edges.
