6 Degrees premieres the dance for camera work, "HUMAN re/con/struct/," five different choreographic voices in one house to explore the shift in society from the problem to the solution - the desire to bring together personalities and cultures for the common goal of redefining personal mental and physical spaces.
"HUMAN re/con/struct/" poses the questions on an intimate level: "How do we create room to include all of our different needs and voices so that everyone is treated fairly, within one space? Where can individuals question themselves, give breathing space to others, and collaborate so that everyone is heard, seen, and given equal time? How can we learn to give up our own space to others? How do we examine the concepts of "otherness?"
