On first look Quiver is a physical experience. But it is also the name of the container that holds arrows or a musical instrument. The choreography is the quiver lor holding bolh sharp and
beautiful experiences and a map to be navigated in performance, bringing to life internal and external worlds in a series of carefully considered frames and containers.
Quiver is a solo set on two performers, where the choreographic material is traded back and forth in creation. It has been a fun way to create, consider transmission, and look at creation with fresh eyes in new frames with the two interpreters.
