Sandra Atkinson, Founder & Artistic Director – Light Switch Dance Theatre
January 10 – February 14, 2016
NEST is a multi-‐disciplinary work by Sandra Atkinson using contemporary dance, visual art, music, and film to investigate the concepts of a NEST (home) for those without one. NEST explores the challenges, achievements, and aspirations of current and former members of the homeless community. Those without “NEST” we ask: How was it lost? Was it ever there? How hard has is it to obtain a “NEST” when you don’t currently have one? What are essentials in our nest for survival in the greater community? NEST asks those who have; What are you willing to do in your community to help those who don’t have a nest? In exploring these questions the project will illustrate that it is imperative mankind has a place to call home no matter the structure.
