It's Been a Time Long, 2018
Dancers: Phoebe Ballard & Charli Brissey
This duet is structured by questions of agency and hierarchy that emerge between dancer and choreographer throughout the process of creating a "solo" on another body. Experimenting with linguistic patterns of Lady Gaga and Gertrude Stein, the two performers impose impossible tasks, meticulous improvisational scores, and complex rhythmic patterns onto one another to reveal various negotiations of desire, power, and autonomy.
