THE POWER OF TWO – dancing duets in 2014
Bodies in dialogue for an intimate and sweaty trip-out fest.
THE POWER OF TWO pushes you, takes you to new highs and new lows, excites you, scares you, cracks you up and delights you.
We will use the connection//distance between two people to fuel the work we do. Over the past 6 years, the majority of my work has been in a close collaboration with one other person. For this workshop, I will draw from my experiences working with artists Cara Spooner, Andrea Spaziani, Philip McKee, Anne-Sophie Malmberg, Zoja Smutny and Zinzi Buchanan in Toronto, Stolzenhagen and Berlin. Some things we will work with: endurance, touch, eye contact, proximity, shaking, word games, hard dancing, small dancing, good music, meditation, bad music and butt massages.
We will move between the mundane and the transcendent.
Open to all people with a body from all disciplines.
No need to bring a partner. We will change partners often.
Berlin-based, Newfoundland-born artist Alicia Grant received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from York University in Toronto.
She is one part of WITCHTITS, a witch power duo, with Zinzi Buchanan. Her work in performance and installation has been presented in Canada, the USA and Europe from stages to swimming pools to gardens to abandoned factories to galleries. Her work is influenced by her study of Craniosacral Therapy with Robert Harris and Shannon Cooney, Yoga with Crescence Krueger and Kyla Rose Maher, Klein Technique with Hanna Hegensheidt and all kinds of dance practices from Steph Maher, Julia Sasso, Meagan O’Shea, Stephen Thompson, Rosalind Crisp, Kathleen Hermesdorf, Vania Rovisco, Maria Francesca Scaroni, Naama Ityel, Larry Arrington, Jesse Hewitt, Keith Hennessy, Meg Stuart, Barbara Mahler, Renate Graziadei , Aimée Dawn Robinson, Susanna Hood and Tove Sahlin.
She is currently interested in these topics and how they relate to the body, dance and performance: transformation, critical tenderness, self-entertainment, disguises, collaboration, jokes, aerobics, paradise, failure/success, real/fake healing, improvisation, rituals, breathing, fatigue, crystals and sweating.
