The Architecture of Proximity combines elements of post-modern dance, voguing, gestural, and impulse generated movement. It is an immersive dance work that explores the relationship between architectural spaces and their physical and psychological effects on the body. The work examines what happens when the proximity between audience and performer is erased and investigates how boundaries and borders define a sense of "ownership" of self and space. Zullo uses the collected essays in Space & Psyche, edited by Elizabeth Danze and Stephen Sonnenberg from the Center for American Architecture and Design at The University of Texas at Austin, to further consider how spaces effect the body both physically and psychologically. Composer David Engelhard creates an original and interactive sound score that responds to the performers' choices.
