Event Description


Choreography by Lucy Guerin
Lucy Guerin Inc

“I love watching the untrained move. They leap into the air before they have given any thought to how they might come back down. It’s always completely unpredictable and unrepeatable. A trained dancer could never do that.”
—Lucy Guerin

My Show:
A look at how the untrained approach the act of moving, and what it reveals about them as individuals. It's about bodies recording history.

Sights and Sounds:
Four dancers (two trained, two untrained), a square taped to the floor, and instructions on stage for them to follow as best they can.

If I could untrain myself in one thing, it would be:
The instilled movements learned from other choreographers. It's like being possessed!

A body's physical history is:
What it's done all its life. But also how its "owner" thinks about it. Is it friend or foe? Enjoyable or limiting?

If I could choreograph for any nondancer, it would be:
Maybe Germaine Greer. Or a marching band. Or my parents, but I think they would get impatient. They have never quite understood the point of it all.
