"Source" is a new site-specific dance installation by choreographer Tori Lawrence. It was presented in the 2010 Philly Fringe Festival, where it was installed in Power Plant Productions, a renovated 1900’s power plant located in Philadelphia’s Old City gallery district.
"Down in the windowless basement of an outmoded power plant, choreographer Tori Lawrence leads a four-woman troupe through the vast, watery darkness. Their dresses soaked, their hair casting arcs of droplets, the dancers careen about the space with little regard for the bewildered audience. They slip and slide, they grab and lift and drop one another, staring straight ahead all the while. That's not a blanket of blankness in their expressions, but of disbelief, terror, resignation, rue. A short film projected atop their bodies and an eerie score by Bing & Ruth only add to the flow. "
