Everything All At Once (EAAO) is a dance-based performance group under the artistic direction of choreographer Jessi Barber. Driven by stories, text, and spaces, EAAO incorporates history, myth, and popular culture into contemporary dance, rejecting post-modernism in favor of accessible image making and story telling. The work is intended to spark emotional and visceral recognition in audiences, offering decipherable, embodied interpretations of our world. In a culture where many are deeply disconnected from the wisdom and knowledge their own bodies, the work aims to resonate physically, emotionally, and intellectually with diverse audiences via expressive movement and lush visuals. Working on the principle that our physical knowledge connects us to past, present, and future, EAAO applies contemporary performance to the project of re-embodiment.
