Movement on Movement
October 29 @ 7:30 pm

In Movement on Movement, Noé Soulier analyzes and describes different ways to conceive movements that aim to offer multiple ways to experience the body. By analyzing them, Soulier proposes different ways of focusing one’s attention on a given movement. Words and gestures interact with each other creating correspondences, frictions, and gaps. Using gestures from William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies as source material, Soulier investigates the ways in which we talk about movement and the ways in which movement generates discourse.

This evening will also display Noé Soulier’s film, Écriture sur Écriture, part of the Portraits collection of the Nouvelle Cinémathèque de la Danse.

The Return of La Argentina
October 30 @ 7:30 pm

With The Return of La Argentina, Trajal Harrell’s work ventures into a new realm of performance. Drawing upon memory and invention, this performance invites the audience into a fictional archiving of butoh co-founder Kazuo Ohno’s signature work, Admiring La Argentina, as directed by other founder of butoh,Tatsumi Hijikata. Here, Harrell fictitiously remembers stories and accounts for, forgets, registers, memorializes, ritualizes, and gives home to Ohno’s work. This work seeks to envisage Admiring La Argentina by abstracting aspects, with a similar verve, to that of Ohno and Hijikata giving to La Argentina. Thus results in the stage name of famous Spanish dancer, Antonia Merce.
