Sponge vs…
by Nick Alselmo

“Sponge vs…” is a solo that takes a look into the mind of someone struggling with the internal conflict of feeling safe in solace, weighed down by insecurity, and displeased with the false sense of progress in human interactions. Movement and voice are used as a device for the performer to unpack these issues.
