Britta Joy Peterson
January 22-23
Indoor Ticketed Performance at Dance Place

And Now, Hold Me offers up kaleidoscopic approaches to holding space via prismatic performance. This unflinchingly tender and unfailingly tenacious duet teases apart the relationship between self and space by using performance as means to couple the living in—and holding of—fleshy bodies and social spheres.
