intuition is preceding over my understanding


November 16-19, 2011


Co-Presented with Abrons Arts Center.

A solo performance of a landscape exploring an expression of time and place present and past. Interested in the movements of sustainability, slow and local and how they can be applicable to choreographic thought as expressed through improvisation and score. Inspired by the Steve Paxton quote “researched the fiction of cultured dance and the ‘truth’ of improvisation”. Is choreography an aesthetics of change? How is my interest in bread making part of a dance (life) practice? Is dance a politics? This solo has something to do with becoming a father. Re-becoming a dancer.

Created and Performed by Chase Granoff. Collaborators: Megan Byrne and Jon Moniaci.
