Zinzi Buchanan, Alice Chauchat, Hana Erdman, Keith Hennessy, Jassem Hindi
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2014/15
Keith says: I'm thinking about collaboration, lack of continuity, and multiplicity as modes of working-making-observing-sharing. I'm thinking about our shared histories in immersive live/work contexts, at Ponderosa, in Turbulence, and in softening the demand for production and reproduction...
Hana says: I'm thinking of simple practices with the potential for layering on top of each other. I'm thinking about precision and specificity of placement of bodies and objects in the face of group performance/experience as ritual. And I'm thinking about bodies that are dressed and exquisite and prepped for something important.
Bring costumes, insight, questions, willingness, resistance, objects, and friends, or not.
Day one will involve two 3-hour sessions with a 1 hour lunch break.
Day two will be an epic 7-hour dis/continuous process. Bring food to share and/or survive.

Recently, her choreographic practice has been geared towards processing the knowledge and complexity of collaborative practices into an aesthetic experience. www.alicechauchat.net
