Later on today I will be back in our home studio in Abertillery for Day 3 making my new work Fractal.
The dancers have been working from the score of Bach’s English Suite no 3 following the intricate and recurring rhythmic patterns of each movement where they have been creating individual movement patterns within this framework. Very complex and detailed.
The thinking behind this involves the subject matter of the work – fractals – where a small piece of a whole entity resembles the entire thing. With this in mind, all of the dancers have also learnt each others’ patterns in order for them to experience the other fragments of the whole work.
I’m very pleased with the depth and quality of what we’ve achieved this far, and very much looking forward to shaping these lovely solos. The whole work will unfold a series of solo episodes with occasional glimpses of the “whole” manifested in duets and a quartet.
