Site-specific work incorporates improvisational structure and instantaneous movement by performers. Composers often interact with the choreographer and the dancers to provide an original, semi-spontaneous score. Combining architecture, movement composition, and edgy emotion, spaces come to life as structures are re-envisioned and re-assembled into vertiginous life forms.
Site-specific performance by choreographer Judith Sánchez Ruíz in collaboration with visual artist Ian Trask. Composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist John McGrew will create the music score.
Performers: Judith Sánchez Ruíz, Simon Wehrli, and Simon Courchel.
Collaborative Performance works: Judith Sanchez Ruiz work is drawn to the exploration of the body’s raw and visceral movement. She pursues a choreography that deals with the radical transformation of qualities and textures in relation to body architectures and geometrical shapes. She has been for a few years fascinated by the exploration of Half Body, especially in a context that offers compositional develop or encounters with Visuals artist work in alternatives places. She studies architecture and surrounding space in advance and generates ideas, which are then brought to dancers who will be in the piece. The ability to make imagination fly through a redefinition of landscapes makes this performance works a living sculpture. Combining architecture, movement composition, and edgy emotion, spaces come to life as structures are re-envisioned and re-assembled into vertiginous life forms: vibrant, refined worlds emerge.
Similar productions by Judith Sanchez Ruiz have been created and performed at The Whitney Museum (DVD available); The Walker Art Center; and The Museum of Modern Art
