Somewhere Between features FLOCK’s signature partnering, rich and complex movement, and heartfelt storytelling. This new work explores myths and childhood stories, unpacking how memory and imagination play into our reality and definitions of self. Co-choreographers Alice Klock and Florian Lochner are joined by a stunning group of guest artists in a program that offers a vibrantly physical and multilayered look at the possibilities within human connection.
Additional Event: Post-Performance Discussion on Thursday, March 23, 2023, immediately following the performance.
