Thousands

Date:
Tue, 25 May 2010 to Sat, 29 May 2010
Presenter:
Next Wave
Description:
I want to make choreography. Live. Here. Between us.

Thousands is a dance performance inspired by the silence between acts. It is a dance that starts in the middle and pushes against the forces of past and future in order to open up the possibilities of the present.

Presenting a series of quiet moments and details in an exquisitely poised and controlled performance by Matthew Day, Thousands simultaneously suggests many time zones and individuals. Its slow, unfurling rhythm creates a powerful sense of stillness and repetition, opening up new spaces between performer and audience.

Matthew Day's work challenges notions of high and low art, referencing elements of pop culture while questioning function of performance and dance in contemporary society. With Thousands Matthew Day literally slows dance down, challenging the tendency for audiences to consume entertainment at a speed that allows no possibility for reflection.
