Hug #32

Hug #32
Friday, March 4, 8-9:00 a.m.

State and Lake, SE corner

To a fellow artist:

To answer your question
my current movement project involves hugging
It is a dance for two people
and most of the movement consists of standing still
with micro-adjustments to stay balanced
It is the dance of sensing one another’s breath
There is no audience
only other participants
performing complex choreographies of walking, stopping, crossing the street

It is quite a post-modern dance
It involves weight sharing and gravity
It is based on a Hijikata poem
There is approximately one costume change
There is one entrance and one exit but no backstage
We do have understudies

This dance is both improvised and rehearsed
I would say it deconstructs classical techniques and forges into pedestrian exploration
I would say it has nothing to do with acting
but something to do with reacting
It is not original.
It is a dance that two people can do anywhere anytime for any reason
(that may or may not be related to making art)
