Next Performance
John Scott Dance "Actions"

7/24/2019 at 6:00 PM

Actions, performed by members of Ireland’s John Scott Dance, is a physical conversation between two individuals in empty space. Two outstanding dancers, Mufutau Yusuf and Kevin Coquelard, merge and break apart. The dance material is a battle through the space using physicality, lifts, falls, text, and sound—the dancers alternately throwing their bodies together then fragmenting into threads of raw movement.  Actions is mostly performed in silence, but uses fragments of music by Meredith Monk and Michael Galasso.
