Pause (for world creation)

Wallpaper Performance Company began their work together two years ago toward Alicia Peterson Baskel’s memorable piece Space Between.  With their newest work, Pause (for world creation), Baskel aims to expose the extraordinary in what might appear simple or commonplace.  What stories are churning in a performer’s mind as she moves through a dance?  Is movement paramount or is something else happening?  What imagery, memories, and associations begin to paint the performance space?  These questions have inspired the process of Pause (for world creation) as the dancers practice noticing the imagery they conjure up, exploring the fantastical and nonsensical worlds they create individually while moving through a collective imagination.  Ultimately, this piece invites the audience to notice and trust their own imaginations on this collaborative journey.

Wallpaper Performance Company is a dance theatre company that aims to stimulate San Diego audiences, choreographers, and performers by re-imaging dance for the 21st century.  Under the artistic direction of Alicia Peterson Baskel, Wallpaper Performance Company strives to initiate conversation about dance and San Diego’s evolving aesthetics in choreography and performance.
