crash.dance.productions presents Proxy. Inspired by the “brain in a vat” thought experiment, where experiences are simply figments in a disembodied brain, Proxy leaves the repetitious, unexamined world to discover what lies behind the veil of the reality accepted as truth. Dancers become cartographers, creating a stage-wide image of coordinates, waves, and lines. Like a morphing inkblot, our discoveries lie in precisely how much we let ourselves see. First presented at Minneapolis’ Lab Theater in 2018, Proxy now returns by popular demand.
