A kinetic fusion of East and West, Thresholds Crossed fearlessly explores the events, ideology and humanistic issues that link the U.S. with the former Soviet Union. Colored by the implied humor of propaganda art, old scars of the Russian Gulag system and modern terrorism, Thresholds actively explores the moment when society crosses the line. This international collaboration of U.S. and Russian dancers combines original music and new technology to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of D.C. based Dance Construction Company.
?[Withers is] our prime evangelist of the novel and strange byways of dance, a tireless advocate of causes, aesthetic and otherwise, and a human juggernaut in the force of her wit, stamina and intelligence.? ? The Washington Post
