Walk Towards The Sun, The Moon, and the Stars is a solo performance designed for one audience member at a time and is intended as an inimitable offering, a ritual, and an inquiry into “what is essential?”. This 1:1 solo creates an intimate, personalized and collaborative performance experience involving being lead, cared for, and a witnessing that brings forth an unfolding adaptation in real time. Together we look into a series of existential questions around our humanity, and the ways we are both connected and disconnected with one another. The performance weaves cinematic, sonic and corporeal togetherness to coaxe intimacy and self-realization through co-embodied reflection.
As a movement artist, Swersky sees the world through the lens of the physical form, committing herself fully to the inherent activism of inhabiting the sensate body. Her dancing path over the last two decades has been influenced and impacted by the realness and rawness of connection with people and places. She is a pillar in the improvisational dance community. She was a long time Co-Artistic Director of Dance Art Group (DAG), which curated the Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation. Currently she collaborates with musician Tom Baker on: Body.Space.Time.Sound, experiments in sound and movement performance, held bi-annually at the Chapel Performance Center. Her work has been presented at many Seattle venues including Open Flight, On The Boards, Velocity and Base. Swersky holds a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts and has been teaching, performing, and creating work in Seattle since 1998. She toured nationally and internationally with the LeGendre Performance Group and has collaborated with many Seattle luminaries including The Maureen Whiting Company, KT Niehoff, Salt Horse and Wade Madsen. She has been on faculty at Cornish College of the Arts since 2005 as a pivotal educator in the dance department’s creative process curriculum. aliaswersky.com
