Caroline Laurin-Beaucage creates a living laboratory where the infinite boundaries of skin are intimately explored.

Using vivariums—transparent tanks on the stage—two dancers reveal their naked forms, exposing both an intimacy we often keep to ourselves and one we are desperate to share. Music, light, and movement converge, revealing a microcosm in constant evolution. In a literal and figurative sense, the intention behind the piece is to confine the subjects, and to strip away their natural habitat, habits, and preconceived relationships in a physical environment as unique as it is demanding. The two bodies sway gently and grow restless in the transparency of the vessels soon to become their homes.

What connections can be established between ourselves, others, and our environment? Can our bodies become porous vectors that dissolve the boundaries of our flesh?
