Seen, Not Heard, is a collaborative and devised effort wherein 21 dancers will examine the difficulties of being seen and heard, the efficacy of advocating for others, and the power of combined forces to enact a response. For each rehearsal, dancers wrote about experiences and explored improvisation scores. The director posed questions, responded to writings, set material from improvisations and gave feedback regarding movement material.
