The Gray is more of a research company than simply a dance company. It is a non-profit, a new venture into understanding dance, led and choreographed by Beth Terwilleger.
Beth and her family moved to Seattle for her husband’s tech job. She found that the “techie” audience didn’t resonate or understand the dance performances she had created.
Instead of trying to make this specific audience understand a specific story, she decided to change it up and create dances that exude emersion and embodiment. With dark lighting, moody music, and a nod to sci-fi, Beth decided that … “There isn’t a story. There isn’t meant to be a specific emotion — just how you feel.”
