Observation theory is the driving force behind the creation of Witness, a duet commissioned by JDdance. The work developed out of physical tasks stemming from the “observer effect” and an interest in how we alter our behavior or performance accordingly, based on our cognizance of being watched. There is a corresponding struggle to both overcome and embrace the idea of being viewed by others, and the two women in this work explore both the dark and light aspects of this in their relationship with each other and the viewer. This work had its world premiere in Toronto in April 2013.
