By La Trottier Dance
In the exceptional situation of pandemic-isolation, the question of our identity and our relationship to one another arises in new ways. With ‘(Con) fabulation’ La Trottier Dance explores the narrative of this micro-social development and the relationship between audience and artist. The experimental arrangement on the stage protects both the performer and the audience from one another. It separates them and simultaneously brings them very close together. What does this do to us and to our understanding of what we are seeing or looking at?
How does a time without physical closeness, without haptic sensuality change us? Can we get close to one another through video? Which narratives do we write and which are ascribed to us?
La Trottier Dance experiments with four performers between and beyond attributions.
