Table on Table on Table (2018)

Table on Table on Table is an auditory/dance performance piece that tells the story of a queer immigrant, Tapan, who struggles to choose between making a home in Philadelphia, where he feels safe in his queerness, and in taking care of his mother in India, who he discovers, is dying of cancer. As Tapan decides, his mothers cells divide and divide. Characters from the audio move throughout an aging Philadelphia attic.

This work was choreographed by Sarah Marks Mininsohn and written Shreshth Khilani .

Broad Street Review described Table on Table on Table as "a poignant piece of movement theater...it shows how spoken word and physical expression can come together to chronicle separation and loss." It further described Sarah's choreography as "elegantly intimate...communicating how people can be physically close but emotionally distant."
