This interactive multi-sensory dance and performance art piece explores spaces that lie between the struggle to maintain crumbling structures and the desire to dissolve into an urban landscape.
Jo Peace – choreographer and artistic director:
Jo (Joy) Peace wore holes in the floor with her passion for dance before she began formal training in her early teens. After graduating high school, her affinity for dance and theater evolved as she continued to study performing arts in Tallahassee, and performed lead roles with Off-Street Players and Theatre Types. Eventually finding her way to Atlanta, she enthusiastically explored the diverse local modern dance scene until injuries sustained in 2006 caused her to stop dancing. After a six=year hiatus, Joy returned to her passion with renewed determination, training intensively to overcome physical and neurological setbacks.

Allen Welty-Green – composer and musician:
Atlanta-based composer/multi-media artist Allen Welty-Green has been playing music, both solo and with various progressive and ambient ensembles since the 70’s. Disillusionment with the music industry led him to explore the world of avant-garde dance & performance art in the mid 80s. This led to the formation of the Mind’s Eye Performance Group with whom he toured extensively across the Eastern USA, performing his ambient synthesizer scores to surreal dance and movement theater pieces performed by Jason Litchford.
