Shauna Elton & Artists: Contemporary Dance Performance


Performance Title: Amae | “No matter how wide she stretched her arms, the amount that she loved us was beyond her reach. It could not be quantified or contained. It was ten thousand named things in the Tao Te Ching’s universe and then ten thousand more. Her love was full throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”
