Slow Falls is a work for three dancers who mark increasingly slow descents down a building exterior over the course of 100 minutes — the shortest “fall” lasting 5 minutes, the longest 50. To complete their falls, the dancers must make microadjustments to the stimulus of environment, creating a work that is a literal collaboration with the surfaces on which it is performed.
