The strategy of this piece was to interrupt the live action with memories of other dances and moments on stage. I asked the dancers to think of other choreographies that inspired or had impacted them. As an investigation with collective composition, we created a structure where the group made choices to compose the choreographic flow forward, or to inject into the piece a moment from another piece. The work hi-lights the notion of the dancer as exceptional archive of movements.
