The State of Which is an evening length dance created from the decisions made collectively among the performers, within a previously agreed up set of decision making principles. The principles of the dance have been derived from questions surrounding the (United States) American social and political system- Questions such as how privilege cyclically effects influence and power, the impossible set of conditions we have set up for our political representatives, or how we define consensus or majority through agreement and disagreement and even how polarization and indifference mix together to create.
In a single evening, this dance ranges from methodical to wild abandon. From the smallest details to the largest landscape, this dance asks you to both settle in and wake up.
The dance is being directed by Krista Kaye Nelson, but is made by the performers live each time it is practiced. The performers include Christian Drugan, Krista Kaye, Megan McBrian, Javier Molina, Alyssa Soderberg, Noel Sundholm, Regina Taylor, Aubrhe Yruretagoyena.
Krista Kaye Nelson has directed this dance with the financial support from San Diego Dance Connect's 2018 Independent Artist Production Award. This production has also received support from San Diego State University.
