This was a great performance space for The Futurist: part 2.
The bright light and raw space amplified the shifts from dancing with total abandon, to strict formalism, to tense duets with tangled microphone cord. “The Futurist: part 2″ thrives in a gallery environment.
Performed by Laura Peterson, Jennifer Sydor, Kate Martel and Meghan Frederick
Curated by Jonathan Shorr
What will happen one second from now?
Il Futuro explores the illusion of the present moment and the quickly planned future, iteration, brightness, and dancing in total darkness.
In early winter 2014, Peterson made this dance and film to force herself to examine her relationship to the immediate choices she makes and her imagined body 20 years from now.
This workshop is highly physical and blends full-bodied and dynamic movement with elements of improvisation to create a sense of continuity, athleticism and detailed dancing.
Participants begin with focusing exercises designed to support the experience of looking closely at the space around them as they simultaneously bring awareness to the body’s internal systems and small continuous movements that connect the outside with the inside. With this awakened state, the dancing becomes fuller as participants find clarity in the body through contemporary dance technique and work toward an understanding of how these elements relate to the concepts that are at the heart of Laura Peterson’s choreographic process and the resulting dancing.
