Un castell built for two (Performance Trailer)

This is a trailer of the first iteration of Un castell built for two, which is a new evening length dance work, paralleling the precarious balance of human tower building and the powerful connections it brings to it's participants. This piece is profoundly inspired by our recent residency work in Llorenç Del Penedes, Spain, where we were able to witness the deeply moving construction of human towers during the fiesta major celebrations of the region. Tonight’s events use the embodied knowledge of contact improvisation and partnering work to explore new methods of weight sharing, relationship, and interdependence to make us ask the question of where the physical metaphors of tower building exist in our own community. This new work is a step in our process to find them. “It's about weight. It's about the weight of our bodies. It's about holding each other and building. Where are our castells in our everyday relationships? What are we building? Who are we supporting?” CHOREOGRAPHY Colette Krogol & Matt Reeves In collaboration with dancers.
