Our Eyes Will Adjust (OEWA) is an experiential immersive performance and installation. With an attention to perception and embodied seeing this work explores the multidimensionality of our energetic and material interconnections to the visibly hidden.  The work moves from the perception of the individual self at the center of experience to the Universal Self  - weaved into the web of Universal matrix which is cyclically governed rather than centrally focused. Influenced by ancestry, nature and new technology, the work is presented in three different settings: live in-person performance, live streamed performance and dance on film.  OEWA is a dance of the in between where the boundaries of dualities of light and darkness, energy and matter, form and formless meet, converse, and entangle.
