NOV 5 - 7
harbinger is a sounding – a call or a cry – that announces a new form of collectivity, a future assembly of bodies. The project considers foundational dance techniques of lifting, carrying and weight-sharing as manifestations of care and empathy–as forms of feminized labour. In gestures of caressing, holding, cradling and entwining, the performers’ bodies blur together in disarmingly sensuous ways. Conjuring an unapologetic feminine splendour, this startling exploration of intimacy and physical interdependence imagines bold new embodiments that make room for both togetherness and singularity.
