Adjusted for Inflation
Two dancers are sealed inside of inflatable vinyl balls. Over time, repeated gestures decay and germinate in correlation with the fatigue and exertion of the dancers, and the momentum of the balls.
structure monster | joy machine
An accumulating circular movement pattern gradually wears out its dancers. The choreography is a windmill, a formal structure that generates power. As the choreography's patterns pick up speed, and the dancers fatigue, they must, paradoxically, relax, softening into momentum, into the arms of the dance itself. Then they fly.
The dance churns softness into power.
Large group work. Collective exhaustion produces ‘energetic unison’ despite radically different movement styles of up to nine performers.

On the psychotic nature of trying to do something impossible
The Hard Way
On the comedic/tragicomic/quixotic nature of trying to do something impossible. One performer is sealed inside of an inflatable vinyl ball.
