Eleanor Bauer [US/BE]
A lot of moving parts
11.01 – 12.01.2019
How does dance think through Eleanor Bauer and how does Eleanor Bauer think through dance? In this solo, the American choreographer and performer Eleanor Bauer embraces the particularity of dance-thought as synthetic, complex, change-oriented, fantastical, and multi-faceted. She works with the frictions, collisions, translations, love affairs and gaps between dance and language, unfolding the notion of choreography as dance-writing, physically and verbally. In Swedish, to feel and to know are the same verb: coincidence, or poetic justice?
• Since completing her training at PARTS, Eleanor Bauer has presented almost all her work at Kaaitheater. They range from clever solos to ingeniously versatile productions for the main stage. Between 2013 and 2016, she was one of our artists-in-residence. She then moved to Stockholm to do a doctorate in choreography. This season, she is also presenting the ‘cyber a cappela Dataist opera’ New Joy on the main stage, along with her partner in crime composer Chris Peck.
