OVERVIEW: Otis Walks In The Woods depicts the dynamic relationship of power, possession and otherness within a transparent environment. Set within the historic landmark, The Philip Johnson Glass House, the dancers are at once within and without the glass enclosure, oscillating between the frustrating realities of the banality of their present and the idealizations of the outside world. The architecture of the grounds becomes the anchoring metaphor for the pair’s dual states of rigidity and flow. Within the seemingly fixed and defined walls of the main structure, the minds of the dancers are explored in an excerpt of their complexity.
