Bloowst windku is an hour long performance for three dancers in which sound, light, and movement are compositional equals. Within a glowing room constructed from more than one thousand used security envelopes collected by Davis and her collaborators for over three years, the familiar is rendered strange as the performers shift with dream-like logic from basic pedestrian movement to highly abstracted forms.
