DURING THE CDF YEAR
“Against Being” examined dance within the context of the philosophical debate between Being and Becoming. The project defined itself negatively, in terms of what dance is not: dance is not a language; dance is not a visual art form. Its process reflected how the conceptualization of dance influences the act of dancing — and conversely how dance evades conceptualization.
Directed by Adam Rose.
Performed by Adam Rose, Liisa Kruusmägi, Anna Bone, Sofia Moreno, Bryan Saner, Andrew Braddock, Eryka Dellenbach, Jon Poindexter, Rosé Hernandez, Aurora Tabar, and Sara Zalek.
A dance about nothing — an exploration of space — the space between language and dance. They say a language dies every 14 days. You don’t know our language, but we know yours. In our language, we have no word for “Being” — no word for “Truth” — no word for “Essence” — we don’t need these words! How could one live without them?
