While we are here resear­ches the age­less desi­re to col­lec­ti­ve­ly dan­ce hard. This group pie­ce brings together under­ground tech­no raving and fol­klo­ric dan­ces that emp­ha­si­ze plea­su­re and together­ness.

The folk we pro­po­se is not sin­gu­lar but a bor­der­less, hybrid tech­no­folk, a dir­ty folk that cele­bra­tes difference.

The folk we pro­po­se is a soft folk, one that choo­ses to dan­ce inti­ma­te­ly together.

The folk we pro­po­se is a lost folk.

With no nos­tal­gia for the past and no spe­ci­fic futu­re in mind, we are here.
