Interior Design is a dance theatre work based on the double-meaning of the title phrase. How do we design and inhabit our living space, and how do we design our own internal spaces?
A couple moves into a new space together, and the process is hilarious, strange and intimate. They navigate nosy neighbors, profound loss, inside jokes, and a sea of boxes.
The piece premiered at the Seattle International Dance Festival in June 2017. Available for touring.
