Guest artist Daina Ashbee, known for her personal and violent works, is fascinated with creating and directing intimate, minimalistic solos mostly performed by women. Working with dancers Francesca Frewer and Antonio Somera Jr., Ashbee has created her first male-female duet: Instant Pleasure Pressure. The roots of a larger transformation that demonstrates our capacity as humans to transform pain, violence and destruction into something else.
Bricolage, created and performed by Yves Candau, Rob Kitsos, Martin Gotfrit and Nur Intan Murtadza. In ordinary language: The activity of tinkering, cobbling, or patching things together using a DIY approach. By extension: Making work from found objects and materials available at hand to create something new. The work comes out of a collaborative process of real-time composition, attending to what we bring with us and what we find ourselves immersed in. In these iterations of our process we are particularly inspired by the warmth, depth, and resonant perspectives of the Edam studio.
EDAMs Artistic Director, Peter Bingham builds on previous iterations of his directed ensemble improvisations. Forming layers of meaning and relationship, the score sets up a revealing course of interjections and rejections. The audience is invited into an exchange with the dancers as they attend to unfolding details, drawing from memory, presence, and a shared history. Performed by Delia Brett, Anne Cooper, Elissa Hanson, Arash Khakpour, Walter Kubanek, Alex Mah, Diego Romero, and Olivia Shaffer.
