Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time

 

Before class or a group rehearsal, dancers will sometimes warm up their sensitivity to other moving bodies by walking in the studio space at varying speeds, trying to seamlessly move toward empty space while simultaneously staying receptive to each passing body. As part of England’s Brighton Festival, choreographer William Forsythe created an installation that invited the general public to manoeuvre in and around swinging pendulums. Their strides and sidesteps became a lively choreography (like a group warm-up) proving organized pedestrian movement is fascinating and everyone can dance.
