Holding still in the urban turmoil, small unconscious moves made while waiting for green light at a pedestrian crossing.
The image and sound of the surrounding world. Everything blends and grows larger only to disappear the next moment.
Is what we do a repetition of movement/sound/image of other people? Can our own movement codes interact with the space?
To what extend the environment – communication, architectural, social – controls our body and soul?
Should we submit to it, or rather oppose? Our performance is a smooth transition from the theatre to the street.
It disappears, dissolves into space.
…And We Will Have Danced Together is a series of five performance scores designed to investigate the ability of movement to travel between bodies across time and space. Created in response to the aesthetic and critical contributions of the Judson Dance Theater (New York, 1962-1964) and other contemporaries, scores engage with the principles that Judson-era artists are most known for: pedestrian gestures, public space performance, available technologies, “pure” movement, and interdisciplinary collaboration. The Judson legacy is, in many ways, one of broadening aesthetic horizons. Fifty years later, our contemporaries benefit from the space cleared by those artists in order to include diverse practices and ways of creating within the realm of dance. However, rather than attempting to recreate or solidify the characteristics of the Judson Era, these scores seek to examine the way that these approaches have arrived to the modern consciousness, and the diverse interpretations and permutations that have occurred in transit.
