Sisters Jodie and Melissa Toogood have spent the majority of their lives on different continents, appearing and disappearing from each other consistently for almost twenty years. Inspired by their desire to reclaim space together, SET A|PART combines contemporary dance with visual art in a multi-disciplinary exploration of place. Choreographed by Jodie and Melissa Toogood, created in collaboration with Visual Artist Kenneth E. Parris III, this work is an attempt to reconcile the kind of limbo one finds themselves in while questioning one’s sense of home.
