The Sound of Space Between Us is an interdisciplinary performance connecting sound and movement through and within physical space. The program traverses a spectrum of notated scores, sonic maps and choreographic exercises by Seth Cluett, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Angélica Negrón, Morton Feldman, Dai Fujikura, and an original work by Annie Nikunen, and features choreography by Nikunen and Joelle Santiago.

Festival ticket packages include entry to the festival opening night on Saturday, January 20 at ShapeShifter Lab, featuring works by Paul Novak, Bobby Ge, Jessica Meyer, Baldwin Giang, Yaz Lancaster, Brittany J. Green, Lucy McKnight, and Nina Shekhar, among more others. Visit blackboxensemble.org/events for full information.
