THE DANCER, SPLIT by Kadri Sirel
Time & Location
About the Event
are dancing like
how meaning your to collapse
I’m my dancing bigger
where dancer’s not trapped,
The dancer empathizes with her dance and vice versa because they recognize each other’s vulnerability in a world that prioritizes the knowledge of the gaze. The dancer knows that vision touches merely the surface of what her dance is about. That leads the dancer into finding an identity to her dance, coinciding with her identity as a woman, taking them outside the narrative of seeing as a dominant way of accessing their value.
THE DANCER, SPLIT constructs a world beneath the dance’s optical surface. It invites the audience inside the dancer’s body, where her imagination, listening, and layered perception will be unraveled through text, sound, and movement. The performance asks how the knowledge within her body subverts the narrative of sight and encourages new narratives of listening and imagination instead.
