Our company is driven by the idea of mythologizing the experience of our senses; creating performances and visual art that challenge the viewer's perception of time and perspective as well as allowing our work's intention to be spacious enough for empathetic experiences to emerge. Our work realizes and exists in the state of liminality- the sense of being 'in-between'. By working across different disciplines, we filter our sensual experiences into the mediums that best embodies a facet of the myth our overall concept is based on.

A Crack in Everything

"Big ideas deserve big risks, and Scofield and Shuey seem
to have the guts to create some glory."

Janine Parker, The Boston Globe

a crack in everything

Zoe Scofield and Juniper Shuey offer a surreal, visually arresting examination of the gap between cause and effect in A Crack in Everything. The evening-length work explores the enduring questions of justice posed in the Greek tragedy The Oresteia through dramatic video and costumes, atmospheric installations and lighting, and Scofield's ritualistic movement. A Crack in Everything was made over a two year span with production residencies at On the Boards and in Hungary, New Zealand, and the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire.
