Brooklyn Studios for Dance @ 8:00 pm New York City Performance Premiere
Since 2002 Kathy Westwater’s choreographic practice has centered on articulating what she describes as the disorganized body. In it the orientation of the dancing body on the central vertical axis is re-imagined. Exploring with eight dancers their individual spontaneous responses to a set of choreographic directions, this dance considers what we derive from an intentional practice of disorganization. Extemporaneous performs the unstable, unbound, and disorganized body.
