How might we experience the impossible through human bodies?
Untitled (bodies in time) is a choreographic study and expansion of a solo creation by Katie Adams-Gossage that seeks to answer: How can the human body alter the essence of reality? How can a movement score transport an audience into an entirely new state, temperature, size, speed, understanding of time and space?
Adams-Gossage aims to propel the audience into a fully developed, understandable world with its own set of rules, convincing onlookers that they are somewhere or experiencing something they are not: distorted time, disproportionate size, a particular quality of air, fluctuating levels of gravity. This consequently calls up unreal or impossible images that are made possible with the craftsmanship of the dancing body. The work’s vocabulary proposes a new ‘normal’ for limb alignment, muscle tone, movement tempo, direction, and musical embodiment. Precise, just-perceptible shifts from the choreographic norm inspire audience members to question their own size, position, and state of being.
