no clean lines in the drying concrete translates the psychological state of living in the in-between into movement tasks mapped onto the dance space. Three dancers transition athletically, exhaustingly through solo, duet and trio as they navigate physical and spatial challenges, and their relationships to each other. The dancing occurs in carefully bordered zones, then sometimes spirals beyond those borders and coalesces into sections that emphasize subtle timing, rhythmic shifts and gentle, deep listening. Multiple group snapshots emerge and accrete to form an evolving family portrait of individuals trying to connect through hidden difference and quiet trauma.
Guest choreographer Victoria Marks presents Tourette Floret, a solo made for dancer Alexx Shilling.
A note from Marks:
Tourette Floret was initially constructed using my son's tics. I have added a few of my own. This piece was made with his permission.
Guest choreographer Alyssa Gersony contributes this place with the pretty-sounding name - a palimpsest of sounds, bodies, politics and events influenced by the personal and historical accounts of the tenure and subsequent deinstitutionalization of the Willowbrook State School.
Marks, Gersony and Alson-Milkman are three generations of choreographers making work about atypical neurological experience or special needs from three different perspectives.
