Production Details / Press Releases
Three dancers remake dance pieces that have shaped their own dance biographies into a collective embodied memoir. They speak up, not as muses or tools for the choreographer but as a force. They speak up about pain and pleasure, reflecting upon the politics of the dance world, dance education and dance making. Through personalizing these choreographies each of the dancers is rewriting and retelling her story. In the process of coming together, the coexisting stories unfold parallels and contradictions while ultimately underlying an alliance. The work is a feminist contribution to the search for new forms of collaboration which question authorship and hierarchy and functions as a call to change power structures in dance.
