Why small dangers?

We hear folks comment that they didn’t realize how small we are until they’re standing right next to us.


Smallness, like grandiosity, bears certain magics and particular perspectives. We consider simplicity, infinity, scale, empire, desire. We know, maybe like you do, what it means to be underestimated, being read one way and knowing ourselves to be something less anticipated.

As performers we research how our statures allow us to hold each other up, how we fit into each others’ capacities, to roll as we fall.

Dangers are what we approach in our movement, both physical and conceptual.

Making work in a world world shot through with oppression and obstacle offers the opportunity to learn resilience through practices of agility, strength, and collaboration.

We understand harm reduction as a model for performance. We choose acrobatics, dance, and partnering not in spite of the dangers they present but because of them: they are a practice we cultivate to explore keeping ourselves safe in an unsafe world.

We invite intersectional, queer, resilient, and multi-disciplinary collaboration and comrades of all persuasions. Drop a line to let us know how we might co-conspire.
