easy prism /san francisco/jan 2007

 

easy prism is an installment of PRISM

 

easy prism began as a piece that explored the relationships between repetition, contemplation, contraction and habit as described by Gilles Deleuze in his essay “Repetition for Itself.”

 

easy prism is compiled of phrases that I have been dancing for an extended period of time. As the phrases are repeated, specific types of narratives begin to unfold. The structure of narrative may or may not be easily recognizable as the form or the choreography remains relatively constant, persevering through its repetition. It is rather the experience undergone, by dancer, by audience, through time. How apparent this is remains subjective. Dancing these phrases through the months has also shifted, as meaning, impulse, reason, desire and response I procure has changed. The personal context of creating this movement can certainly be underscored by an intensity of emotion… though in line with my formal aesthetic preference, such feeling is refracted off the dance, rather than generated by it as a place of origin. (Here raises the question of where dancer and dance might be distinct.)

 

easy prism aligns itself with each space within which I find myself dancing: be it a classroom, an entry foyer to an apartment building, a gallery. Through this (re)contextualizing new forms of structure and potential narratives emerge. Feelings change as every day is different. Every step is a new song.

 

easy prism offers sensation through endurance. The dance does not require a sympathetic audience, or dancer, though it relieves impersonal overtones through sheer physicality.
