TCITCW duet

 

 

October 19, 2005

@ the EVENTS CENTER, bedstuy, Brooklyn

 

 

performance:

Biba Bell

Gelsey Bell

 

choreography:

Biba Bell

 

text:

Gelsey Bell

 

music:

Suicide, Mick Turner, Mooney Suzuki

 

 

 

TCITCW duet

 

is a development of TCITCW solo,

 

previously performed in SF.

 

 

TCITCW duet

 

was performed for the AUNTS

 

FALL BASH#2,

 

a free dance & performance series

 

curated/hosted by AUNTS

 

Jbird Leary and Rebecca

 

Brooks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TCITCW duet

 

has many small dances

 

inside of it and three main parts.

 

There is the bicycle dance

 

which is especially interesting

 

and fun to do

 

for a long time.

 

It is made to dance like a 10 speed roadbike.

 

Biba takes the time

 

to enjoy these dances.

 

Gelsey watches the camera,

 

joins Biba some, then does

 

one long repetitive dance of taking

 

9 cans of stewed tomatoes

 

out to the sidewalk curb to dump out later on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TCITCW duet

 

includes a monologue

 

in which Gelsey

 

is telling the dream of Biba

 

and at the same time talking to Biba.

 

In this monologue

 

Gelsey is a mermaid

 

that is trapped in the arctic

 

and becomes a polar bear

 

to compensate for the extreme cold.

 

But the person that Gelsey is with

 

(is it Biba?)

(or is this Biba's dream?)

 

is instantly afraid

 

of this sudden transformation

 

into a polar bear, and

 

runs away and

 

Gelsey must run after them

 

and then she wakes Biba up

 

who is at this point already

 

thrashing around

 

with her blindfold.

 

Gelsey is locked outside on

 

Nostrand Avenue

 

and Biba runs out to get her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TCITCW duet

 

was performed here

 

on Biba's birthday,

 

it had birthday elements

 

including streamers and a game

 

where one person falls and is dead

 

and the streamers

 

are thrown all over them,

 

then they get up and it's

 

the other person's turn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

... there is no movement that is not infinite [...] the movement of the infinite can occur only by means of affect, passion, love, in a becoming that is the girl, but without reference to any kind of 'mediation' [...] movement as such eludes any mediating perception because it is already effectuated at every moment, and the dancer or lover finds him- or herself already 'awake and walking' the second he or she falls down, and even the instant he or she leaps. Movement, like the girl as a fugitive being, cannot be perceived."
