"Mine, Abandoned" is a 6-minute dance film by Invertigo Dance Theatre featuring a stunning duet in stark surroundings. The film was shot in an abandoned mine in the Mojave. The piece is rooted in shared strength - two people who know one another deeply but continue to find new layers. They relate to one another without predefined gender roles - both dancers lift one another in virtuosic and inventive ways, and they relate to one another in quirky, personal moments.
"Mine" is also available as a live performance. A winner of the 2016 McCallum Theatre Choreography Festival's Grand Prize.
