Two people. A bar stool. A park bench. An apartment.
Muscle memory, past and present, all viewed from behind. What stories does the back tell of who we are, what we know, and where we've been? What secrets does the spine whisper, what weight do the shoulders carry?
BackStories invites you to consider what you hide behind you and what you reveal when you walk away. 
BackStories is a new dance/theatre performance piece conceived, created and performed by Scheherazaad Cooper and Becka McFadden. Through a series of solos and duets, we journey into the expressivity of the back.
