Description My Show:
A look at how the untrained approach the act of moving, and what it reveals about them as individuals. It's about bodies recording history.
Sights and Sounds:
Four dancers (two trained, two untrained), a square taped to the floor, and instructions on stage for them to follow as best they can.
If I could untrain myself in one thing, it would be:
The instilled movements learned from other choreographers. It's like being possessed!
A body's physical history is:
What it's done all its life. But also how its "owner" thinks about it. Is it friend or foe? Enjoyable or limiting?
If I could choreograph for any nondancer, it would be:
Maybe Germaine Greer. Or a marching band. Or my parents, but I think they would get impatient. They have never quite understood the point of it all.
