About the Work

Eric Handman’s work is rooted in its physicality, the demands of its execution, its complexities, its nuances of timing, which together exert a compelling experience that we connect with, outside of any particular narrative. And yet we feel part of a story, something from the future and also very old, something that continues with us because it is never completely known.

Remora was commissioned with the generous support of The Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation to GroundWorks NewWorks Fund, and with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Cleveland Foundation and the Kulas Foundation.

Eric Handman is an American choreographer and an Associate Professor at the University of Utah’s Department of Modern Dance.
