2021 - present

Generated in the context of absence, Severance (2021) marks the close of a particular shared trajectory, yet one that has no definite end. Instead, Severance endures as a network of ongoing change and distillment. Through the sublimation of tools discovered in Carriage and Bearance, Davis and Gould forge new dimensions of shared experience. Trust begets separation and sensation bestows empathy. In the spirit of a gem’s formation, Severance is forever cut and faceted by new choreographic structures tuned to the evolving nature of need and desire, refracting the entirety of a body of work both past and present.
