Dance artist Leyya Mona Tawil asks: Can a dance be destroyed?
Destroy// Manhattan was built at the TANK in 4-hours with local dancers and musicians Ava Mendoza (guitar) and Ryan Sawyer (drums). It is composed, but untethered. The artists attempt a work imbedded with mechanisms that make its execution increasingly impossible, forcing the material into stages of evolution and deterioration. In performance, the dance destroys itself.
Destroy// Manhattan, presented by The TANK, is part of DANCE ELIXIR's international performance/research tour called Destroy// All Places which has also traveled to Rome, Athens, Berlin, Amsterdam and on both US coasts. Information about Destroy// is located here: www.danceelixirlive.org/destroy
