ARCH

 

It’s fitting that the highly circulated quote, “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture,” has no stable source. Dozens can be cited, including a list of illustrious musicians—Costello, Zappa, Monk—voicing the difficulty of brining music to words., but what about this relation between dance and architecture? Citing modernism through the work of Piet Mondrian, Dan Flavin, Merce Cunningham, and Lucinda Childs, and set to an original score sounding the resonant, full-bodied tones of marimba, Arch creates a theatrical stage that is molded, bent, and vibrated into life by the bodies that travel through, with, against, and upon it. This is the dance of architecture. Let’s think of the effervescent body of the dancer as a luminous architecture. Stripped of weight, density, and the rigor to stand still indefinitely, this architecture might be slight, in the most moving sense.

 

Illuminated through contact and proximity, breath and sensation, these are dancerly architects… as are you.
