In her first work with Unusual Symptoms, US choreographer Faye Driscoll has developed a ritual of touch in which six dancers get radically close to one another. Calving, the breaking of large ice chunks from a glacier’s edge, serves as a visual metaphor for six bodies slowly falling into each other. Like the boundaries between bodies, Driscoll’s new work blurs the space between performer and audience, between choreography, sculpture, and musical score. This gives rise to an evening which activates all our senses and invites us to experience our relationship to other bodies in a new way.
Faye Driscoll is known for works that make complex demands on the senses, leading the audience to become aware of their own entanglement in the action. Her works have been shown at festivals such as the Venice Biennale, the Festival d’Automne à Paris and the Melbourne Festival. With Unusual Symptoms, Faye Driscoll has now for the first time produced a new piece in Europe.
