(un) Threading Dance
“A thread of attention” may be composed of action, undoing or presence.
As a new dance practice, (un) Threading serves to potentialize dance while offering new articulations unique to each who practices.
(un) Threading Dance can be compositional, generative or an embodiment practice.
Starting relationally, we touch into threads that activate connections between body-systems, the body-field and forces around us. By experiencing ourselves as mutable conduits and articulators of forces between earth, space and other, we move with a responsive structure, articulate new directions and “undo” dance to find presence.
We explore the dichotomy of dancing universal lines of force found in dance across continents and liberating body-systems- to be in space again and again in many iterations of line, space, spiral and dissolve. As we dance form and non-form and visit remnants of dance history, we (un) thread a new kind of dance.
Composition and Ritualized Group Dance
Dance happens in a relational system. We explore how materiality between the body, space, time, sound, object and other unfolds in a time-based process where both composition and embodied ritual merge.
Dance is composed by collective forces, as relational thinking informs choices.
The Future We Want / Choreographic Communing
We experiment, learn, compose, re-wild and commune as a friendship of bodies. How we think about dance and embody Now, affects the relational field and future potentials.
