Tomorrow I head to Bassano del Grappa in the north of Italy for some research for a project with choreographer Eva Recacha. We had a first go at the project last summer at Choreodrome at The Place in London, but this time in Italy is more sustained. We don’t really know what it is is yet, but Eva has a very precise eye in the studio, so we are trusting that something will emerge.
One thing that marks this project as slightly different is that I (the dancer) initiated the collaboration with Eva (the choreographer). We are curious about how this less than conventional offer might influence how we work in the studio, and what the project might end up like.
Here’s a brief flurry of movement from the work we did at The Place last summer.
