Portals

Portals

At the core of Clancy’s work is what we call architectural partnering.  We define this as the choreographic use of dancers as architectural elements (doorways, walls, windows) in order to provide physical scaffolding that creates a philosophical metaphor to choreographically explore the building of human relationships.  Portals may be seen as the sequel to Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit; however, in this version, the dancer find a way out of hell by looking for the doors of opportunity, searching for those people would like to accompany us as we pass through those doorways.
