Revolver speaks to existential threat from super-catastrophes. An accompanying work, Choreomaniacs, for five dancers, explores the phenomena of choreomania or “dancing plague” in which people danced themselves to death during the Middle Ages. These works are bound by the subtext that dance itself causes pain.
