Jennifer Mascall in nominally a choreographer, but she’s also a poet of the ephemeral, a painter of possibilities. A performance by MascallDance is at once conceptually stimulating and gloriously, joyously corporeal: what she does with her dancer’s bodies incorporates physical theatre, kinetic sculpture, free-frame images of stunning poignancy, and seemingly impossible feats of grace.
