Choreographers John Malashock and Tristian Griffin will interweave their experiences, perspectives, and choreographic styles to form a cohesive, but contrasting, artistic narrative through original dance and music. Both will share equally in the conception and creation of THE BRIDGE, which will be set on members of both Malashock Dance (San Diego) and Tristian Griffin Dance Company (Kansas City).
In a world of polarizing transitions, the characters of this dance drama are forced into revealing what lies between opposing perspectives. Perspectives arraying from political and generational differences, to starkly contrasting life stages and experiences. The participants must confront themselves, in an effort to balance their need to be heard, but also to understand different points of view. As THE BRIDGE unfolds, so will the characters’ decisions whether to pull together or draw further apart. Will they find a way across their deep divides, or remain forever on opposite shores? Will they be able to let their differences become water under the bridge?
