Event description
TOGETHER (2019) is an intimate duet in which the two performers evoke images of togetherness through minimal movements.

About this event

Over the years, Maria Hassabi has developed a distinct choreographic practice centered on the relation of the live body to the still image - defined by stillness, deceleration and aesthetic precision. Her work draws its strength from the tension between the human subject and the artistic object, the dancer as a performer and as a physical entity. Preoccupied with velocity of deceleration, and the radical corporeality of the body and its elements, her works reveal the body at its most vulnerable, perhaps even in unnatural states, foregrounding both the enormous demands made on the performers, and every last detail of the performing body. Her photographic and video works use her live performances as a departure point, and the use of technology is employed to override the limitations that occur within the format of liveness and realness.

Walkups are welcome. Due to limited capacity, entry is not guaranteed.
