Alexandra Beller/Dances: “milkdreams” world premiere
Jun 11, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - Jun 14, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
Modern dance company Alexandra Beller/Dances premieres “milkdreams”, an evening-length dance performance based on 2.5 years researching the dances of children. The work attempts to sift from the body the habits, inhibitions, and presentations of the trained dancer, and to recover a physicality motivated entirely by sensation, desire, joy, curiosity, and, ultimately, love. To mine this territory, the company has meticulously recreated the dances of a 14 month old and a 5 year old (Alexandra’s children) as well as from the experience of watching a baby sleep/dream; to aid the process, the company has collaborated with Developmental Movement experts, including Martha Eddy (BMC, CMA), and have engaged in a creative process in which they use the baby material to create unique vocabulary that bypasses intellectual and neurological patterning and reveals a dimension to movement that is magical, unconscious and utterly personal.
