Borders & Heritage: S0E317 (5 min)

If you know the prolific Seattle choreographer and dancer Mark Haim, the way you move is likely to be showcased in his new work. For his upcoming solo project "Parts to a Sum" Haim asked over 430 people from his life ranging between the ages of 1.5 to 93 years old to send him 5-10 seconds of movement, which he is memorizing and performing in age order from oldest to youngest. What unravels is an intimate reflection of aging from a lifelong artist who's both coming terms with, and pushing the limits of, the physical and spiritual bounds of movement.
