A dinner party with friends introduces a variety of human complexities and interpersonal exchanges. Moore pairs the old vinyl sound of the ballet’s score with clear, neoclassical movement to explore relationships among six women and four men — and the association between our inner emotions and exterior facades. Moore previously choreographed Four Marks for PBT’s Millennial Movement program in 2017 and has created works on PBT School’s pre-professional students.
