Loop’n’Groove: Micro-choreographies of the Past
Digging into a variety of filmed dance performances from past glorious times, composer Barbara Ellison generates impossible dances, mesmerising routines, hypnotic moves, surreal looping music, and much more in her new work Loop’n’Groove: Micro-choreographies of the past.
What if any choreography potentially contains an infi nite number of other –very different– unperceived choreographies? By looking and listening at audio-visual recordings of dance not simply as documentation but rather as an open territory for creative recombination, Ellison reveals in this new work a fascinating rabbit hole of surprising and exhilarating ‘media dance’.
