CALL FOR CREATION RESIDENCY

"The Memory of We"
“I want to create a choreographic plot around the beauty and the lucidity of Memory. I want to be able to play with how memory can be affected and felt in the body. Most importantly, I want the viewer to be able to see memories through different lenses and to find the sensitivity, the emotions, and the nuances that run parallel to our own personal stories”.
A trio based on a storyline that reflects a variety of diverse emotions and human complexities, playing with the passing of time and showcasing a series of personal stories in fragments and vignettes of specific memories. Through the form of motion and dance, the audience can see these memories played out through the lens of each character. However, what is fascinating about memory is that it can be easily skewed. It can be something that is distorted from actual reality, for it is always based on perspective, and with time, all memory is eventually warped. And it is this window of opportunity where we tend to rewrite our story. With three dancers on the stage, Rachelle wants to be able to show how time can be fast forwarded, warped, rewound, and retold. And with a clear, theatrical and visceral choreographic exploration, she wants to play with memory and time, and its pull on humanity’s hopefulness.
