How to Fall
falling | falling | falling
How to Fall was an investigation in the concept of falling. I was interested in the moment of abandonment, the place in time and space when the body lets go of its holding. Through task and experiment, this piece explores the ways the body falls. How does the skeleton collapse? Giving my dancers tasks, I asked them to then explore in the imagination and in the body other metaphoric concepts of falling: to fall in love, to fall asleep, and to fall apart. How did imagining those stories of falling mentally and emotionally affect their physical embodiment? How does language affect physicality?
