In PaperPieces, Wolcott uses dance theater, spectacle and papered structures to explore a world of awkward moments exposed, tender collisions, and mundane survival. The protagonist is a naïve in snow globe memories, a haute couture avatar doing battle and a woman balancing on the most delicate edge of love.
Wolcott sources the sensory and psychological connections we have with the material objects we touch, see, and engage with daily as a catalyst for composition and performance.
Together with her collaborator, sound designer Omar Zubair, they create a piece that operates like a series of cinematographic dissolves and quick cuts where density of narrative detail is delivered in complex blasts.
The visual, sonic and kinesthetic information ultimately compounds and subdivides, giving the audience a sense of being an intimate co-conspirator in the destruction and reformation of this paper world.
