xyz: chain creation
xyz: chain creation is a new twist on xyz nyc, The Tank's successful choreographic laboratory/reality tv show mash-up dance series. Instead of getting one week to create a brand-new dance, two groups of dancers have had three months to collaboratively create longer work. Like xyz nyc, the creators are required to follow certain open-ended choreographic rules, but have free reign beyond that. The series is called "chain creation" because the current participants will create the new rules and nominate the new artists for the following session and next performance.
The Rules for the second chain creation session are:
The dance must contain three images that come from a famous dance
The dance must contain a foreign language
The dance must create an expectation, then break it
Since the performance is a double bill with two groups who have the same rules to work with, the show offers the unique opportunity to compare and contrast how different groups of artists interpret different open-ended choreographic requirements.
