Service No. 5: Dare To Keep Kids Off Naturalism

“Service No. 5” is the fifth part of Linder’s “Choreographic Services,” a series of works that uses the service model of per hour or per day hire, to articulate a distinct economy for dance when it exists outside of the ‘contractual’ bounds of the theatre. In “Service No. 5,” the performers work against the onus of naturalism and authenticity that the context of the white cube has inscribed onto performance. The dancers embody various situations in which they take-on these ideologies of contemporary performance with a air for the arcane and the theatrical.
