Collaborators and interpreters
ALLISON ELIZABETH BURNS, LINNEA GWIAZDA, MARIE-PIER GILBERT
A work where spoken word and dance truly intersect requires room for both. They exist in an atmosphere created by the spoken word and music, adding breath through movement, carrying it to places only dance can go. The third element is light: light as a paintbrush, creating form and the darkness around it. Light becomes the tool that sculpts the body. Dancers respond to light as if it was a force: sometimes attracted, sometimes repelled. Light may fall on a body in quiet meditation, or catch only the shadow… A moving arm, a neckline, bodies swinging through light, bodies apart or in contact. pour corps et lumière / for body and light is a project about the intersection of these elements.
