(NOT SOLO)

WATER STUDY

Solo (not solo) Water Study is an intimate work, a joyful, quiet, sometimes loud, sensorial celebration of female expression for two performers, one dancer and one percussionist, who play at attempting sound and movement synchronicity, negotiating following and leading and everything else in between, failing with joy and full agency at their respective tasks.

 

Moving with their fluid instruments, they use attention, redirection, pausing, silence, breath, the sound of water and its absence, to see, match or interrupt the flow.
