Summer 2021 – Measures of Motion

PWYC Rental from May 26 to June 2, 2021

Closing Q&A Wednesday, June 2, 7:00 pm EST (zoom link inside!)

At a moment when the space between us is rife with anxiety and risk, the task of moving towards intimacy with comfort or ease can feel next to impossible. How do we move in isolation? Where do we move in spatial constriction? The term “social distance” became a part of our everyday lexicon this past year. But it seems as though our bodies have been rehearsing for remote dances in bedroom theatres and detached duets on sidewalk stages for longer than that. Our phones are keepers of ubiquitous, collective choreographies that we might not even know we’re participating in. Many of the videos in this program were created before the pandemic, and yet the ways in which each one uses choreography and movement to measure intimacy and distance or mediate desire and survival seems very much of this moment. In Measures of Motion, we see a multiplicity of ways that moving bodies resist social and political anxieties through connective gestures, solitary confrontations, and choreographies of care.
