Welcome to a workshop showing with MA Dance!
For the past 4 weeks, they have been working with choreographer Rosalind Goldberg. The focus has been on the concept of destructive plasticity, and the decelerating bodily conditions fatigue, lethargy, apathy, drowsiness, and the forces these conditions convey. The body’s capacity to go through metamorphosis is part of our biology, and we praise that ability to change. That change is often seen as something positive, a progression, a step forward. But that progressive capacity is counterbalanced by a form of destruction. The fact that all creation can only occur at the price of a destructive counterpart is a fundamental law of life. It does not contradict life, it makes life possible.
The drowsy, slow, lethargic sides of life we often try to hide for ourselves and it is often hidden in institutions, behind sick leave, or other medical descriptions. Looking closer at their timing, force, “texture” and behavior, we have been working with their dynamics, how they can move the body and what materiality they can inspire to produce.
For the showing, the MA students will share excerpts of the material that has been found throughout this period.
