One Two Many Short
In a deep dark setting, such as another planet with limited light, and limited resources, the 5 dancers work through motions that are organic and of the future. The 5 dancers seem like they broke off from our human tree and continued to evolve in an isolated, anaerobic environment. This piece begins with the dancers pumping up and down, as if to recharge their batteries, or perhaps they are pumping to emit some chemical into the atmosphere. Their movements are graceful, efficient, competitive and technical. There is a sense of survival, cooperation and at times, drudgery. It is as though spoken language has evolved out of the human experience. The music is electric, chaotic, organic and loud. Costumes are martial arts-esque with a large, circular symbol, or icon, evoking a tribal unity that these 5 powerful dancers share. Perhaps they are the keepers of something sacred, like knowledge of the essence of human connection. The flashing lights create an atmosphere that is other-planetary or futuristic. The combination of the loud electric music and flashing lights make the dancers seem very light. You never hear them land or breathe; they are pure motion. – Audience member, Zorami Samuelson
