In She Ain’t Heavy, She’s Reaching Into Space, Faye and Kai perform discussion and discuss performance using a format they created within the last 6 months. The format requires that they discuss what to perform, perform it, then debrief it after. This brings focus to the integral role of discussion in collaborative performance-making. They debate, agree with, and wait for each other’s feelings and thoughts. Are their arguments compositionally interesting enough to be considered a performance in themselves? Is their decision-making process vulnerable or guarded? How real can their discussion be when it is staged?
Come witness Faye and Kai becoming premier self-referential dancer-discussers as they reveal their creative process and blur the line between studio and stage, rehearsal and performance, process and result.
