A series of intersecting scenarios and moments of déjà vu create Shatterstate. Inspired by the idea of fractured narrative, the dancers live and re-live the same but slightly altered moments. The shards of a shattered story contribute to an infinite number of outcomes in this ‘choose your own adventure’ performance. It is honestly physical and conceptually free to navigate.
