We Are Particles

2019 | a work in progress

We Are Particles investigates the wonders and pleasures of life in our universe, episode by episode. Fueled by a loose, curious grip on Atomist and Epicurean philosophy and a dedication to human tenderness, we imagine ourselves as motes, landforms, and pleasure-seekers traversing space, from the intergalactic void to the dance floor.

Performance by Ross Daniel and Katelyn Halpern. Sound design by Katelyn Halpern with engineering and consultation by Elliot Cole and Josh Halpern. Developed with support from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Jersey New! Moves Emerging Choreographer’s 2019-2020 Fellowship.
