Debris is a contemporary dance work inspired by the increasing urgency of pollution and its contribution to the climate crisis. As we buckle under the weight of the accumulation of man-made waste, Debris asks where is the body (humanity) and nature within this? In this collaborative work, 5 dancers – Alisha Davidson, Arash Khakpour, Eowynn Enquist, Juan Villegas, Matt Wyllie, and apprentice Jenna Berlyn – physically explore the effects of ‘debris’ that submerge both their internal and external environment. The work seeks for a hopeful re-integration of a respectful relationship between nature, the body and each other.
This pre-recorded showing will share excerpts of work in progress, and a discussion with the choreographer.
Artistic Director Paras Terezakis wants to open a dialogue on the impact of pollution, to embody knowledge, envision possibilities, catalyze emotion and inspire action. He is experimenting with the limitations of the current pandemic through distanced duets and ensembles, interrogating how to create physical intimacies while observing physical distancing, reflecting on how we are interconnected, exploring stillness vs high intensity.
