In Sarah Levitt’s Full Will, eight people assemble to attempt an unnamed act, preparing mentally and physically to do what no human being has done before. The performers drive themselves relentlessly through movement drills; hurtle into each other’s arms and up into the air; sing and shout their truths, all of the sake of accomplishing the impossible. This work examines the formation of a community of beliefs, and what happens at the intersections of doubt and conviction, hope and reality, and the present and future. An installation by Columbus-based artist Leah Frankel and sound design by Stowe Nelson provide the physical and aural landscape for the performers’ insatiable urges to do what (maybe) can’t be done.
