ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
“A (micro) history of world economics, danced”
Created during the height of the European economic crisis, Micro Historie, “A (Micro) History of the World Economics, Danced”… is a large-scale dance piece with performers Clémentine Baert, Kate Moran, Cécile Musitelli and Virginie Vaillant; a professional chorus and non-professional singers including children, youth and adults; up to 30 local participants and 1 philosopher. A (Micro) History… is a non-linear economic history of the masses circulating around the lives of local participants.To develop the piece for New York City, local participants will gather in workshops prior to the performance to share their own economic histories and discuss the larger history of economics as it affects their lives. With the professional dancers, they will recreate their daily actions in “a ballet of raw bodies” accompanied by the vocalizations of the professional choir and with economic history provided by Eric Méchoulan from the University of Montréal. 50 anonymous people with their bodies, their past, tall, short, young, old, of different ethnicities and ancestry on stage as one community making meaning of this crisis together in dance and song.
