Body Not Fit For Purpose + Conversation with Adrian Heathfield

Body Not Fit For Purpose + Conversation with Adrian Heathfield

Philadelphia, PA
Body Not Fit For Purpose (2014) is their first overtly political work, taking as its starting point the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt. Built on the structure of La Folia, one of Europe...

One Flute Note

The Quiet Dance & Speaking Dance

The Quiet Dance & Speaking Dance

Philadelphia, PA
In The Quiet Dance (2005) both men stand upright and from this position initiate movements with a sense of amazement akin to that of a child taking its first steps and making its first sounds. The result is a combined action that is both masterly and comic and pulsates with a delight in movement....

Both Sitting Duet + Artist Talk
