Is That All There Is

Meyers investigated, through movement, the intricacies of power dynamics among women in efforts to expose the underbelly of modern motherhood. Incorporating a game-based methodology as a compositional tool, she explored a physical manifestation of how women relate to one another psychologically, particularly in competitive situations.

Is That All There Is premiered at Dance New Amsterdam in October 2007.
