DANCE ON ENSEMBLE

Those specks of dust (Kat Válastur) & 7 Dialogues (Matteo Fargion)

DANCE ON ENSEMBLE consists of six dancers, and over a two-year period, will be developing a repertoire for experienced dancers over the age of 40. “7 Dialogues” is their first creation, consisting of a series of six highly personal solos which were developed in tandems by artists from the fields of theater, visual arts and choreography. As dialog partners, Christopher Roman is working with the Bulgarian performance artist Ivo Dimchev, Amancio Gonzalez with the London-based visual artist Hetain Patel, Jone San Martin with the English director, author and performer Tim Etchells, Ty Boomershine with the New York choreographer Beth Gill, Brit Rodemund with the choreographer and dancer Lucy Suggate, and Ami Schulman with the French choreographer Étienne Guilloteau. The seventh contribution was made by the composer Matteo Fargion, who reduced Schubert’s Erlkönig down to its basic structure, thus providing the framework for the work of the six tandems. “7 Dialogues” was shown for the first time in January 2016 at the Holland Dance Festival in the Hague.

Tanz im August will host the premiere of the third work to be specially created for DANCE ON: “Those specks of dust”, by Kat Válastur, which invites the dancers to recall the process of becoming a dancer. The act of performing is reversed and gives ‘the eye of the beholder’ to the dancers, whose gaze shifts to their own bodies to watch them as they create movement. The choreography gives the six dancers the space to re-experience, re-discover and express their admiration and surprise towards their dancing bodies.
