Dancer explores stress, perception in new production

Choreographer Sara Coffin offers a look at new Mocean Dance duet Standing Alone Facing You

Contemporary dancer and choreographer Sara Coffin launched a new duet this week with artistic partner Gillian Seaward-Boone. Titled “standing alone facing you,”  it explores two sides of one person, she says.

Watch Coffin describe a highly physical scene that represents “being weighted down with all your thoughts that you can’t get out of your head.”

Mocean Dance bills the larger show, Ordinary Rebels, as a “study of external reality versus personal perception.”

The dance premieres at Neptune Theatre Jan. 21-23.
