Behind Painted Lines

Behind Painted Lines was created by choreographer Cara Goodwin as a tribute to her partner Joshua T. Harris, a U.S. Navy SEAL killed during a 2008 combat mission in Afghanistan. Josh was a prolific artist whose paintings explored and exposed his deep and conflicting feelings about honor, loyalty, beauty, foolishness, and folly. Cara’s dances trace the narrative of their relationship against a background of imagery from his works. The design draws its palette and rhythms from Josh’s paintings.
