Thaw, a 60-minute ice/light/video dance, is an unlikely symphonic investigation of elemental encounters under increasingly curious circumstances. Inspired by the first crack of winter ice breaking up on a frozen shore, Thaw “suggests a desire to shatter surfaces and release the vital reality trapped within.” (Eva Yaa Asantewa, Village Voice critic) Rich in violent beauty and deep quiet, Thaw evolves into a kinetic poem, a love letter to time. Videos created by Patrik Widrig from documentary film footage of Shackleton's 1914 Antarctica voyage and the last ice harvests in Maine.
