'The Dress' (2013)
A dress train of 4 indifferent men are chauffeured by a preoccupied woman in heels while the men's synchronized idiosyncratic movements evolve into larger phrases exploring 4/4 rhythms. The idea conveys how indifferent people are to taking advantage and being taken advantage of by each other, the comfort of riding coattails and how we somehow still chauffeur people ahead of ourselves. The non-presentational performance invites viewers to question how they identify their individual experiences of things they would never admit to others, or even their selves, with what they experience with these dancers in the space. The very rough available video (http://youtu.be/P8Z5M-WdNY8) is from the first exploration of the movement. The video is to give you all a basic visual of the performance concept and is not the finished piece.
