Dance - RAW Moves Presents 'Indices of Vanishment' - 23 to 25 Feb 2017


Contemporary dance company RAW Moves presents Indices of Vanishment, an original dance piece  choreographed by ST Life! Theatre Awards nominee Edith Podesta. It also includes Lighting Design by Adrian Tan, Sound Design by Teo Wee-Boon and performed by the RAW Moves Company Dancers.


Edith Podesta is very excited to present her work with the RAW Moves dancers, 'Working with dancers is a luxury because their bodies are so eloquent and their muscle memory so enduring that I can work deeply and quickly in the studio. As a choreographer, I’ve always been interested in the democratisation of the dance form. Although I believe everybody can dance, there are caveats to that hypothesis. An untrained body lacks the powers of repetition, access to emotion and breadth of somatic articulation needed for live performance. Working with the dancers from RAW Moves is such an absolute joy!'

About her inspiration behind Indices of Vanishment, Edith shares 'The title comes from an essay about performance archives written by Rebecca Schneider titled ‘Performance Remains Again’, 'We understand ourselves relative to the remains we accumulate as indices of vanishment, the tracks we house, mark, and cite, the material traces we acknowledge as remaining'. I was also influenced by Marcia Siegel’s book 'At the vanishing point: A critic looks at dance'. Siegel states that dance 'exists at a perpetual vanishing point'; I thought the parallel between the ephemeral in dance and the transitory nature of life very striking."

Indices of Vanishment  by RAW Moves is on 23 to 25 February 2017. Log on to http://indicesofvanishment.peatix.com for tickets!
