What is failure, and how do we deal with it – as individuals, and as communities? In the new installation/performance FAILURE, choreographer and visual artist Laura Peterson uses the language of dance and sculptural design to probe the national consciousness in the aftermath of 2016 Presidential election. Peterson zeroes in on the overwhelming pressure to compete, which is at the heart of the American way of life. Is a small defeat less devastating than a colossal mistake? What is the real outcome of the “winner takes all?”.
