A Solo


In 200 Ways, a dancer uses move­ment as a medi­um to cre­ate a bond between them­selves and the audi­ence. Written with invis­i­ble ink, every move­ment con­tributes to a canopy of con­nec­tions that rests in the eyes of each indi­vid­ual spectator.

200 Ways is a chore­og­ra­phy built on syn­er­gies where the spec­ta­tor becomes the pro­tag­o­nist just by look­ing. A unique move­ment lan­guage forms to cre­ate under­stand­ing, com­plic­i­ty and prox­im­i­ty, and reveals how even the sim­plest move­ment of a fin­ger can talk about so many things; it is a play­ful per­for­mance where the dia­log between the audi­ence and the dancer becomes the dance.

Here, a dif­fer­ent kind of move­ment vir­tu­os­i­ty is pro­posed: instead of tricks and jumps, sim­ple com­mon ges­tures serve to gen­er­ate an encounter between the per­former and the spec­ta­tors. 200 Ways oscil­lates between the abstract, the per­son­al, and the fan­tas­tic to cre­ate an unfa­mil­iar yet fas­ci­nat­ing move­ment uni­verse, where an out­stretched hand is as cap­ti­vat­ing as a somersault.
