An investigation of how logic can be formed utilizing randomness in the choreographic process. How can random movements begin to form meaning once they are placed in relationship to one another? Perhaps the outcomes of the things that we see occurring around us are complex, but maybe the laws concealed under them are quite simple. "The Wallflowers" are a quirky family of siblings. An eccentric family. A family that is willing to share its collective sadness, discovered identities, tensional relationships, and the
drive to just keep going.
