Rounds is a dance for Wellfleet’s Long Pond. The result of slowly melting glacial leftovers, Long Pond’s sediments contain clues about the past lives of this well-loved landscape, in addition to indicating changes that are occurring presently—whether over the span of seasons, days, or moments.
Viewers may watch from any vantage along the water’s edge as performers create movement patterns that reverberate across the body of the pond. Inverting the tradition of theater “in the round,” dancers move at the periphery of the performance space, attempting to share a dance that travels from one shore to the next.
