Animals on the Beach & my choreographed body … revisited

In the context of RE-Perspective Deborah Hay

Duration 75 min, no intermission

Animals on the Beach (2019)
They look like animals on the beach, thought Deborah Hay as she observed workshop participants and didn’t really know what she was seeing: it was precise, but also poetic and enigmatic. The association led Hay to the title of her new piece, “Animals on the Beach”. In it she will collaborate with five outstanding dancers familiar with the intimacy and stringency of Hay’s performance practice, and who also contribute their own knowledge. For the choreographer is less interested in the movement than the person dancing, and the relationships that create this dance.

my choreographed body … revisited (2019)
All Deborah Hay has ever done is dance. Fifty years’ practice has deeply choreographed her as an artist; she has been formed by her own dedication. In order to preserve her interest in dance over this long period of time, Deborah Hay has continually extended her ideas of movement, performance and practice, has pushed the boundaries and learned from her body. In her new solo, “my choreographed body … revisited”, she pays tribute to this wealth of experience – and for the first time she is without the compositional edifice that previously determined one solo from another.
