When on stage, bodies stand in for something; they allow readings to pass through them and to be projected onto them. But they are not still, they are moving. They too are passing through, or being passed through, as we inhabit them during our lifetime. In the end they are vessels carrying stories for a short amount of time, until they break open and the stories pass through to another vessel.
This series of small performances will be scattered throughout the festival. Like a song that is passed between people, each performance will echo the others but will be defined by the voice and body of the performer. Together, they will attempt to reflect the complex histories of bodies and the simple beauty in noticing someone for a moment.
Song will be performed by Natacha Bryan, Collin Clay-Chase, Emma Frankland, Kazuko Hohki and Sheila Ghelani as part of Independent Dance's What Remains festival
