Textures and texts

9:00 p.m. The Second Floor Collective gathers on the 2nd Floor at Dov House. Alo has brought extensive pieces of fabric-like paper for us to experiment with. The paper is crinkly. Movements with the paper generate sounds and forms. The paper remembers intra-actions. Movements generate mounds and swirls. The dance plays with these textures as Ana Francisca reads texts. Neruda’s “Ode to the Book II”. The sound of her reading voice is lost in the loud play that ensues between Alo and I. We swirl long tangles of fabric. Whipping the swirls at each other as we lunge. Soundings. We generate loud, low, cushioned blows as the fabric-paper whips past bodies at speed.

The night is warm, moist, and foggy. Fall colours luminesce. Alice is insistent.
