“The body has found an enemy (or a friend, depending on the point of view) to its own measure. It is none other than possibile disappearance, at least as we knew it. Opposite to the body cult, now the body is obsolete. And that’s why it as been modified, dissected, metamorphosed.”
– Domingo Hernandez.
“La danse produit des éléments qui exorbitent l’image, tout devient étrange et se déplace; le plan, ses développements, les modes de la projection et le statut des corps – ce que l’on peut appeler la puissance figurale de la danse.”
– Nicole Brenez.
“History has taught us truths of isolation and its wretched ability to distort and tear at the roots of built and nurtured values – isolation from community, isolation from language and voice, isolation from knowledge, isolation from the very idea of one’s self. To appear before and with others allows our very bodies to confront perceived absence. In challenging absence, we challenge fantasies that we have been wiped clean from these lands. If the body is an assembly, how do all the parts of this assembly appears? Can they all appear? From and within precarity in relation to what cannot be assumed, these assemblies wrap toghether as a field of unknowable moments waiting to be seen. Appearance agitates invisibility. Vulnerability insists upon individuality of the body in light of its appearances, freed from absence.”
– Camille Georgeson-Usher.
