Our Eyes Will Adjust (OEWA) is an experiential immersive performance and installation. With an attention to perception and embodied seeing, this work explores the multidimensionality of our energetic and material interconnections to the visibly hidden (a felt reality that is unseeable with the eyes). The work encourages a shift in perception from the individual self as center to an experience of the universal self—a self woven into the web of a Universal matrix that is cyclically governed rather than centrally focused. Influenced by ancestry, nature, and new technology, the work can be experienced in three different settings: as a live in-person performance, as an online streamed performance, and as dance on film. OEWA is a dance of the in-between, where the boundaries between dualities of light and darkness, energy and matter, form and formless, meet, converse, and entangle.
