THE WEATHER IN THE ROOM (SLOWDANCE)

2021

 

The weather in the room explores altered states of speed through the emotional, meditative and ambient effects of bodies and landscapes. Sliding between gesture and stillness, passing flow into form, movement enmeshes with the dreamy hybridity of time and attention as material. We have zoomed into a point where fluctuating particles of color, light, texture and detail become visible, an experiment with planes of existence beyond the boundaries of contemporary personhood. Isolated from its causes and purposes in choreographic pasts and futures, this molecular thingness seems to unwrap at a level below action, utility, efficiency or (however abstract) causal unfolding.
