—- TANZTAGE 2013 —-
For my new solo “Vessel, resonating” I built a frame around the idea of resonance, through which I look at body and movement techniques that have been important to my personal dance history and the way I assembled corporeal knowledge in the past two decades.
The display of choreographic skill isn’t as important as the irreverent treatment of it, since I recognize that what determines the “skill set” in each perspective on technique varies as much as the physical skills a technique aims to instill. So I am generally not too interested in “how to convey expertise”; rather I am interested in subtlety and contrast, and in the shifting of awareness, values and frame of mind.
body as sound, body as animal, body as female, body as shadow, body as interiority, body as theory, body as imagination.
I am hoping to create more space for fully corporeal and sensual experiences in and around me with “Vessel, resonating”. Let’s see.
