Impact: after the fall (2015), Performance/video, 2:00
Exploring the idea of reverberation following impact and brain trauma. The feeling of being contained or trapped in the body. Wanting to burst out. The liminal boundary between outside and inside. Leaking anxiety or nervous energy. The yearning to be physical. The physicality of the reverberations. Falling. Getting up. Engaged effort and struggle.
The creation process included guiding the performers through a series of exercises and propositions drawn from Butoh and contact improvisation designed to foster an embodied state and create a vocabulary of movement used for the composition. Original music composed for the work by Jeremy Costello/Special Costello.
