I CON is a performance interrelating the two themes of Death and Illusion to ask the question; What Is Contemporary? I am asking this question in relation to performance, through multiple choreographic processes, the first is learning how to impersonate artists that have died, specifically artists that in death have become iconic.
I CON seeks to further generate movement material through experimenting with methods that contest the position of the ‘author’ of the dance. Experimenting with new ways of transparently performing the transformation of knowledge as it travels from one body to the next, bodies dancing uniqueness and sharedness at the same time. I am interested in the creation movement practices that democratise and flatten hierarchical structures of knowledge.
