About This Performance

Danced, whispered, and lip-synched to the music of Chavela Vargas.

 

Danced, whispered, and lip-synched to the music of Chavela Vargas.

Dysfunctional gestures, unspecified movements, rhythms and dynamics relive an archive of both written and oral stories using projection and literally “said” and “unsaid” narratives.

It’s about forgiveness.

PRODUCTION DETAILS

Dancers:  Variable production proportions available for touring with 4, 6, or 14 dancers

Length:  25 minutes

Special Requirements:  Projector

Work uses only projection.  There is no lighting aside from bringing-down house lights.  Dancers are familiar with how to set-up the projector to ensure the proper sight lines.  We can set-up in 2 hours.   Projector needs to be placed on the ground of the stage (in front) as far back as possible from projection wall or screen.  Either a white or black background is ideal for projection (e.g.:  no coloured brick walls).  Ideally, it is a presented in a space that is 5×5 – 8×8 meters.
