DD Dorvillier & Sébastien Roux/human future dance corps [US/FR]
Only One of Many
27.04 – 28.04.2018
Dance 1, Dance 2, Music 1, Music 2
How does your perception of a dance or music sequence change when it is combined with a different choreography or a different musical composition? In Only One of Many, composer Sébastien Roux and choreographer DD Dorvillier invite you to experience the six possible pairs of four elements: Dance 1, Dance 2, Music 1, Music 2. What meanings, impressions and images are conjured, and what unexpected relationships to listening and looking are stirred?
• DD Dorvillier is originally from Puerto Rico. She currently lives in France, after living and working for many years in New York. As a choreographer, she focuses on the relationship between abstraction, physicality, perception and meaning. Last season, during Performatik17, Dorvillier presented A catalogue of steps in A week of steps at the Villa Empain. For the past few years, Dorvillier has collaborated closely with the French sound artist and composer Sébastien Roux. In his works he experiments with listening conditions, with the concept of soundscape, and with composition using formal constraints.
