This work looks at creation through a scientific lens, employing a sci-fi renaissance approach to storytelling and image-making. Fueled by the dichotomy between artificial and organic, isolation and intimacy, human and animal, RELIC poses the question “Can we recreate human connection synthetically?

RELIC was made possible through the generous support of the Emily Molnar Emerging Choreographer Award underwritten by Suzanne Bolton and Jefferson Mooney.
