PACK is a dance based on communal interactions and collective drive performed to a propulsive musical score.

PACK will be an hour long dance piece, choreographed by Jessica Gaynor, set to a new musical score by Quentin Tolimieri. Lighting design by longtime collaborator Andrew Dickerson. The evening-length work was scheduled to premiere June 2020, but will be rescheduled for 2021, at Triskelion Arts, a dance theater in Brooklyn, New York.

PACK is a work based on communal interactions and collective drive. The movers assemble, cluster, collect, give space, and exert themselves physically and emotionally in order to form a stronger center. The piece investigates systems of support and community building among individuals. From a distance this pack appears blurred and non-specific. The individuals merge into a single mass, a collective, driven rhythmically and energetically. Upon closer viewing, each body comes into form. There is constant juxtaposition and interplay between the group and the individual, form and response. Inspired by repetitive tasks performed by insects, assembly workers, and athletes, PACK explores the power of collectivity.
