Premiere - May 2, 3, 2014
Graduation Performance, SFU School for the Contemporary Arts
Inspired by their first work hush-hush, Gina and Charlotte restructured the duet to encompass a cast of 14 dancers. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh uses the original concepts and movement sequences within new structures and patterns. It has been inspiring to watch each dancer explore the movement through their own body, and eye opening to realize exactly what each body is physically capable of. The work also demands extremely specific unison, tight timing, and total silence – a very different challenge when working with 14 dancers. This is a unique choreographic opportunity to reinvestigate a work with seven times the original number of performers!
