During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, with shelter-in-place orders underway, Seattle Dance Collective became one of the first companies to produce new dance for digital distribution. In the immediate aftermath of canceled live performances, Artistic Directors Noelani Pantastico and James Yoichi Moore commissioned five choreographers to create a collection of new works for their project, CONTINUUM: Bridging the Distance. Each of the five films were choreographed, learned, performed and filmed amid the myriad constraints of social-distancing.
