Choreographed by Sara Shelton Mann in collaboration with Keith Hennessy
What if I don’t get it?
I haven’t seen it yet, but I read a little bit about the background on this piece. I must admit to some hesitation. Does it matter if I know the history or Mann’s story?
After seeing the piece, here are my reflections:
Moving history – Moving self
A beautiful exercise in present-ness
Energy – energetic
I didn’t get the whole of the piece, but I came away with something. Sometimes dance makers/collaborators make dance for themselves or small “select audiences” (take a look at Hennessy’s interview). I get that as a process, and yet I don’t get it. I wonder how many in the audience had seen or worked with Mann before?
