Heather Kravas (USA)
Comprised of a kaleidoscopic ballet, a mutating folk dance, a human machine and a titillating cheer, Heather Kravas’ a quartet explores the possible outcomes of individuals dancing together.
At once precise and overwhelming, a quartet drastically reduces, then reiterates its vocabulary to examine the politics of societal fidelity. How do disparate beings become one faction? What is the nature of exclusion and opposition? Where is the end of us and the beginning of them?
Desire, communism, preteens, servitude, black holes and the pastoral cross paths with tradition. Conventions are considered through a minimalist lens – it is an aim toward the singular from the multitude and back again.
