Choreographer/Dancer: Martin del Amo
Composers/Musicians: Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey

Parade was originally designed for presentation in two parallel lifts, evoking the fleeting encounters, intriguing coincidences and repetitious potentials of continual punctuating presentations. The aim was to investigate fundamental relationships between dancer and musicians through the lenses of gravity, glimpses and the partial view. The envisaged final outcome was to have a pair of lifts display fleeting human tableaux as a kind of slow camera shutter, where the mystery of what is seen and not heard and what is heard and not seen increasingly resonates.

In the two weeks leading up to their ROOM TO MOVE presentation, the artists will reassess and build on the outcomes from the work's 2015 first-stage development. They will review the extensive photo and video documentation of the initial development as well as their own notes and reference material. On the basis of this review, they will formulate the framework for a series of dance-music experimentations to be conducted 'on the floor'. As part of the August 25th showing, they will present a selection of vignettes generated from those experimentations.

This session will be facilitated by JANA PERKOVIC
