Dependent (2014)

Choreography: Wayles Haynes in collaboration with dancers
Text and Costume Design: Wayles Haynes
Lighting Design: Jason Aufdem-Brinke

Multiple deployments, intermittent communication, and a disconnected public characterize the modern military family experience. The rigor of waiting along with the emotional toll of loneliness, anger and hope are shaping a generation of husbands, wives and children. Dependent, which premiered in March 2014, is choreographer’s Wayles Haynes’ investigation of the public’s perception and personal experiences of military families in this contemporary era of war.
