A DISORIENTED YOUNG WOMAN STUMBLES UPON AN EMPTY ESTATE. THERE ARE SIGNS OF A LUSH LIFE, BUT THE INHABITANTS HAVE DISAPPEARED. OR HAVE THEY?
Through a visceral, visually striking sequence of events, SEA MEADOW reinvents the thriller genre using dance, choreographed gesture and pop mashups to investigate the themes of identity, mortality and memory. A young woman stumbles upon a seemingly empty estate. Hesitantly she enters and wanders its chilling insides: a Pandora's Box that entices and haunts her with a series of stylized dance tableaux. History reveals itself in these poignant flashes. She is in fact a ghost in her own home.
“Another standout demonstrating the power of minimal dialogue: Fellini-chic."
"Baldwin breathes life into the thriller genre by using dance and pop mashups to investigate themes of identity, mortality, and memory."
