STATIC WIRE - A night of dance with Lara Gemmiti & Kate Morales
JANUARY 17 2015
SARDINE is pleased to present STATIC WIRE, a night of dance with Lara Gemmiti and Kate Morales. It will begin at 8 pm on Saturday Jan. 17, with a reception to follow. Doors will open at 7:30 pm.
Our bodies are vessels, which store emotion within different parts. Our mind responds to our bodies’ stored emotion, which then leads our body to its most natural movement. Separately creating movement through structured improvisation, Lara and Kate came together to notice accidental similarities to their bodies’ reactions to feeling. For STATIC WIRE, they are making a conscious effort to only move when both their mind and body felt, simply…happy. A film, which will be projecting over the dancers’ bodies, is to further illustrate the separation and similarities between the two performers and their process. This is part of a collection of solo works that made their debut last July at Sardine and will be performed at The Greenspace’s Fertile Ground in April.
