Legend holds that executions and hangings took place in the alley and that buckets of blood spilled down the cobblestones from the alley’s butcher shops. Today the alley continues to ride upon these somewhat fabricated stories creating an energy that invites us to bring forward our darker shadow selves. What is partly a historical fiction has become a conceived and perceived truth that affects the alley’s current day actions and lived experiences. The work is performed by dance artists; Salome Nieto, Alisoun Payne, Olivia Shaffer, and Cara Siu, with lighting design by Philip Birkby.
