Project V (5)
Project V (5) is a contemporary dance theater production exploring different forms of human touch, interaction and its effect on self identity. Project V was created by Co-Artistic Directors of Michiyaya Dance: Anya Clarke and Mitsuko Verdery. Clarke and Verdery combined their visions of movement and performance art to create an evening-length production of human investigation.
Through ten different identities, studies of human interaction unfold with focus on five different states of being: neglect, manipulation, emulation, repercussion, and rehabilitation. Through these different states of being, qualities of touch such as: contact, impact, perception, and communication are explored. Questions of self versus the other and individual versus group are revealed.
With an all women cast, Project V challenges and investigates women's role in society and their interactions with one another. The dancer's personal investigation is on display. Ideas of visibility and exposure are explored directly with audience involvement. Project V uses improv-based movement to delve further into the understanding of these different identities. Project V is accompanied by live improv-based music by Florent Ghys, guiding the dancers through their stories. The world premiere of Project V, will be on March 5th and 6th at the Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, NY.
