small dances
Artistic Discipline: Dance
Category: Brooklyn Arts Fund
Grant Year: 2023
Location: Downtown Brooklyn

Through a series of performance offerings, "small dances" attempts to renunciate the desire to be Human and turn, instead, to ghostly beings. "small dances" experiments with a repertoire of precise, repetitive, rhythmic, tremoring, and durational movements, while further juxtaposing my ongoing investigation of dancing with ghosts and the Northern Vietnamese folk practice of feasting around death. There are three offerings of "small dances" in Brooklyn throughout 2023: the first one, titled "Weather," takes place outside in downtown Brooklyn in January; the other two small dances will be shared at the Invisible Dog Art Center (presented by ISSUE Project Room) and the Target Margin Theater in Fall 2023.
