Program note
Does power exist in the structures we create? In the way we withhold information? In the walls and levees?
Or, is it in the vulnerability and reveal before the storm?
Now, think of a secret.
Where does it live in you? How does it move through you? How would it reveal itself?

Kinesis Project's process is intensely collaborative.
Secrets and Seawalls has been created with the performers above and:
Benjamin E. Oyzon, Hilary Brown, Zoe Levine, Jun Lee, Andrew Broaddus and Max Olivier Steiner
via residencies at Gibney Dance Center, TheaterLab NYC, and Adelphi University.
The world premiere will be in New York City in 2015
