Trying to sweep back the ocean with a broom, choreographed and performed by Alethea Pace was a contemporary dance filled with contextual evidence that highlights times of segregation. Her dance told a story of a mixed race woman being accused of deceiving her husband, by hiding her identity. Through her dance, she showed movements of betrayal. Her movements were subtle and concealed in order to let the audio highlight the performance. As the spotlight shone down on her, her shadow followed her across the dance floor and her facial expressions told what the audio simply could not. – Michelle & Anesa
