About the event

Open Space and BodyVox present Open Ended // Empress Archer  

Empress Archer digests the input of 12 choreographers, 10 years, 8 cities, 4 global upheavals, 3 weddings, 2 pregnancies, and an infinite grasping for humanity into a dance show about one relationship. Ariel Freedman and Meredith Webster join forces from opposite corners of the world (Israel/Palestine and San Francisco, respectively) to witness each other, survive motherhood and loss, goof around, and achieve something together that can't be done alone.  

Source Material By: Roy Assaf, Christian Burns, Charlotte Griffin, David Harvey, Magdalena Jarkowiec, Ledoh, Melinda Jean Myers, Ohad Naharin, Ella Rothschild, Ilya Vidrin, Zack Winokur, and Aviv Abeba Yosef

Co-Created by: Ariel Freedman, Benjamin Wardell, and Meredith Webster

Open Space will open the performance with Squeezing Honey from a Stone, a world premiere by Canadian New York-based choreographer, Elijah Labay.

Labay describes his work as "a reflection of self and how we present ourselves to the world....we explore the dichotomy of a hard exterior to protect ourselves and forms of inner softness, which we reserve for our relationships or self love."
