They may be masked, hidden or exposed by light. They are precise, they rarely devolve. They never emote. They are a blank canvas of abstract gesture, time and space. They are just a version of themselves, once a version of someone else. They are looking for the pleasure in emptiness.

Vancouver

Premiere

Drawing inspiration from Rebecca Solnit’s “A Field Guide to Getting Lost” as a thematic, this solo work explores different tasks as tools to disorientate oneself, getting lost inside of movement to force discovery of new positions and pathways. Isolated Studies documents the venture into an unfamiliar body and place

Choreographer: Josh Martin

Performer: Hilary Maxwell
