Jo Lloyd
Handsome is an archeological dig into history and embodied memories. A choreographic puzzle that navigates and examines the ripples of family and legacy. Working with personal histories and recollections, the performers cultivate semi-autobiographical narratives that oscillate between fact and fiction while considering the lineage of their movement. Handsome is built on concealed and warped family histories. What is revealed of ourselves in the act of imitating others?
