Closer (2010-2012) is a dance and video collaboration that explores friendship and proximity over geographic distance. The work was developed over months of in-person and virtual meetings in New York, St. Louis, and San Francisco. The artists filmed each other to create the video and then staged the accompanying dance. The work is also a stand-alone video piece.
