I have been so busy with 70/30 Split recently that I haven’t had half a chance to write anything here! We have just completed a Tour supporting Flight Effect Dance Company.
‘How do you say?’(2011) Is a dance theatre work, a playful interdisciplinary exploration which embodies the connection between autobiography, performance writing and the relationship between women and men in performance. The work utilizes notions of the self, revealing autobiographical ramblings which often address the audience candidly. ‘How do you say?’(2011) establishes a relationship between the audience and performer by offering an intimate dialogue on the subject of being young, relationships, and the utter annoyance and ridiculousness of love, journeying through both witty text and curious movement.
Originally made for four performers, How do you say? (2011) Was reworked for three in (2012) and now for two performers. Two women will rediscover the performance together, and question what happens to the work with the absence of the former cast and what happens when the only male performer is no longer present. The performance was realized through personal journal entries, thoughts and experiences and will now be articulated by two females who find themselves misplaced.
It was a great challenge to rework the material and we will be continuing the development in the future.
