Description

The purpose of this project is to explore memory development and connection through multiple facets of human interaction. “This is for you.” is a solo dance project that explores connection and intimacy through one on one performance sessions across a virtual platform. The piece focuses on what it means to be completely present in the current moment. As each one on one session is explored, there is opportunity for both performer and viewer to embrace a new way of seeing and being together through the channel of technology. The pictures and attached video represent some of the content explored during these sessions. The sections offer a snapshot for others to witness the process of developing movement material over time. This is an essential part of the research process as it furthers the preparation and understanding for movement potential, environment adaptation, and audience reaction in each virtual session. The movement consists of structured improvisation devoted to exploring various tasks and how they manifest over time in different environments. In the end, the sessions will be compiled together to create a collection of shared insight, reactions, and experiences of individuals seeing each other in a new way.
