Double Bill: 1. Trust Me and 2. The Other Door: What’s Wrong, Why Not!? – Moveo Dance Company
Trust Me is naturally attributable to the relationships between two people and building trust between different people in society is an important element in the development of a human being. A performance testing the limits of trust choreographed in a confined space and in elevation, dancers balance and manipulate each other to try and achieve a state of complete trust. This element is developed and magnified throughout the piece until finally dancers are comfortable enough to dance together completely blinded. The dancers are pushed to their limits of trust and the piece becomes a bet and once a bet is set trust is granted.
2. The Other Door: What’s Wrong, Why Not!?
Stepping through The Other Door grants you the liberty of experimenting with your identity – a space to be yourself. The body is the blank page on which society etches its constructed texts – how we think, how we behave and what we accept as the norm. This piece explores the possibility that, when the body is stripped of its socially constructed layers, it has the potential to expose transcribed texts that are more deeply embodied, revealing a truer core that is far removed from what is socially acceptable. An ambiguous creature.Throughout the production, the body is considered to be an unfinished article, constantly evolving to expose a new Other. Conceivably, the Other has the potential to challenge simplistic views as being merely framed by two binaries – right or wrong, male or female, acceptable or unacceptable.
