Ley Lines

Ley Lines are lines of energy in the earth that ancient Celts believed intrinsic to a place. Pearson found Bethesda’s.
— The Village Voice

“Much of Pearson's dance is spent heart and hands on the ground, as if to lay pulse to pulse. There is a sense of rolling room and open air. There's a memory of the playground, of group effort and shifting affinities, of empty fields lengthening in the distance. Andy Teirstein's music, ghostly bagpipes and tectonic drones, makes that distance a dusky, mystical one.” The Village Voice
