Clarity is a movement essay about the physical experience of performing. “Delicate, subtle, vulnerable, and simple,” writes Juan Jesús Guiraldi. “The continuum, a life which is born, death immediately after, and rebirth. The clear feeling of eternity which remains just a feeling.” Guiraldi is a 2022–23 LiftOff Resident Artist.
