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.

eleven.

AVAILABLE FOR TOURING AND COMMISSION

Set to Ravel’s Bolero, with its snare drum beats and layered upbeat tune, the dance contained many of Scofield’s signature gestures—palms to the mouth with fingers curled, arms moving swiftly from on sharp angle to the next in a jerky motion with each switch. The dancers moved like a well-oil machine, executing precise movements and floor patterns much like a military parade. Scofield knows how to play with the music; she times her choreography not only to the prominent beat of the music, but also to the inner rhythms below the surface.

Premiere at Strictly Seattle, Velocity Dance Center, August 2012

there ain't no easy way out

Zoe Scofield's there ain't no easy way out reveals how seamless and exquisite such collaboration can be. The opening image, crafted by Seattle-based video installation artist Juniper Shuey, is so spooky and entrancing it would be a shame to spoil it. It simply must be seen. These first moments promise an innovative artistic feast, and that promise is kept through the final curtain.

- Brangien Davis, The Seattle Times

The first evening-length collaboration between Zoe and Juniper premiered at On the Boards in 2006.
