How do the institutions we inhabit every day impose their realities and histories upon us?
How might we gesture towards other ways of inhabiting these spaces?
TOUR plays the line between rapid-fire absurdity and quiet sincerity. In this work, dancers take the audience on a guided tour of a space, while drawing on their own understanding of its history. Along this improvised tour the performers share their “instantaneous expertise” on the history of objects, their surroundings as well as their own bodies and personal histories.
TOUR treats facts and fiction, dance and pedestrian movement, truth and performance with reverence and irreverence. This piece draws audience attention to how we are choreographed by spaces and what dominant stories or histories are shared.
