Mile Zero Dance presents, Beyond Borders, its second salon of the winter season in conjunction with dc3 Art Projects. Jen Mesch will be adding a dance element to the spoken words of Ben Freeland.

Using the geological drop off the continental shelf outside the heavily built-over construct of Tokyo Bay as a metaphor for the boundary between the accepted and the forbidden, Skindiving in Tokyo Bay is a meditation on the outer limits of social sanction and the allure of the dark and dangerous beyond.
