I Think Not...?
choreographed by Deborah Hay
adapted and performed by Anushiye Yarnell
Deborah Hay choreographs using a set of aesthetic criteria, which exists below, the surface of our perceptions, and includes a more holistic approach to the human being and the artist. Time, space and form are not cemented into the dancers final vision of the piece, but are relativistic principles, which guide the dancer perceptually through the dance and the performance. Her works continue to expand the concept and experience of dance through her unique process of embodied inquiry and her continued engagement in dance as a means of exploring consciousness and of posing unanswerable questions; deeply, seriously and with humour.
Somehow the next unrecognisable moment unfolds, the same as the last ...
the bells, the spiral and the melodic song appear intermittently throughout the day. We shed thoughts as we shed skin. Dust luminous in the sunshine, each day a new face- still stranger and more familiar with each passing moment.
HERE and GONE......
No hesitation. No reconsideration.
The future has no ONE to hold, the past has no hands, no feet, no phantom limbs.
Do not linger & find the secret increments of time.
READY! FIRE! AIM!
Seeing is symbiosis. No trickery or deception is necessary. We make vows.
There is no single meaning, no time to believe or to make believe. There is no time to hatch an invincible plan...
Survival depends on it.
