Event Description


The choreography of Danza Permanente comes from a musical composition created in Vienna two centuries ago by a deaf man, Beethoven. In this new work, the score is transposed into movement for four dancers, each taking the part of a single instrument. They embody the musical structure and dynamics of the string quartet, behaving as sound, in silence. The transposition is by choreographer DD Dorvillier and composer Zeena Parkins, with dancers Fabian Barba, Nuno Bizarro, Walter Dundervill, Naiara Mendioroz, and rehearsal assistant Heather Kravas. The lighting design by Thomas Dunn and the acoustic environment by Ms. Parkins follow the score, framing the silence and the visible music. 

In conjunction with the evening performances of Danza Permanente, human future dance corps hosts What we do, a day of lectures, discussion, and practice, covering silence, music, dance, you, choreography, labor, and the universe. Includes a listening session in the dark of Beethoven's Opus 132 in A minor, sharing of strategies and processes used to create a translation of its score with DD Dorvillier, lectures by Stefania de Kenessey and Neil Greenberg, and a mini-concert by Zeena Parkins, plus time for talking about it all. Saturday, September 29, 10am–4pm. FREE / B.Y.O.L. (bring your own lunch) / RSVP to rsvp@humanfuturedancecorps.org.
