Run Don't Run

Premiere New York Premiere
Country of Origin United States
Description Brian Brooks is a daring choreographer, concocting precise, kinetic, and volatile sequences of movement that test the threshold of physical endurance. In Run Don’t Run, Brooks (recently awarded a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship) employs rapid-fire partnering to explore the spatial contradictions of bodies in motion. Behind a blur of color—created by hundreds of cloth strands stretched across the stage—dancers ricochet off one another in a strobe-like flurry of actions: captured, suspended, and broken apart. Microphones installed throughout the space pick up every sound, amplifying the laws of gravity and inertia, as the dancers transgress space and time.
