MODULE #1 (17 - 24 August 2019)
with Juliana Hodkinson (composer and musician) and Emma Howles (contemporary dancer)
NOTHING BREAKING THE LOSING
The session is lead by Juliana Hodkinson
During our residency, we will proceed from concepts of resonance and silence, working both with aspirations towards sustained states, ideals, and transcendence, and towards insufficiencies and the collapse of meaning that occur when silence breaks into fluid articulations.
Performance by Emma Howes
The Dancing Plague of 1518 was a phenomenon of collective dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg. The outbreak began when Mrs. Troffea began to dance fervently in the street. Her manic movements lasted somewhere between four and six days, but within a week thirty-four others had joined, and within a month over four-hundred people were taken by this torrential force.
