Artistic and life partners Laura Schandelmeier and Stephen Clapp’s Portals balances on the space between what was and what is to be, examining the transformative process of evolution, rites of passage, crossing thresholds and looking back…or not. The duo is committed to creating works that reflect their individual and combined experience of contemporary dance, theater and culture. Clapp’s commitment to the intersection of art and social justice with Schandelmeier’s edgy exploration of dance as an art form combine to forge a unique blend of artistry, cultural synthesis and contemporary commentary. “Achieving the perfect balance between depiction and suggestion in motion narrative is difficult but not impossible…Laura Schandelmeier and Stephen Clapp have made a start.” (Dance View Times).
