CHILMARK, MA: Headlong Dance Theater's "Island"
The Yard residency is to work on a dance called Island which will be the foundation of a multifaceted series of performances and participatory installations called The Quiet Circus, a meditation on the intrinsic nature of space, place and bodies.
Headlong Dance Theater was founded in 1993. The company is committed to collaboration and process-orientation in everything we do, from creating new work to teaching to budgeting to community service. Over the years, Headlong has created over forty dances, with recent work focusing on audience engagement (asking audience members to DO things and take risks); site-specificity (working outside of theatrical venues and embracing the actual physical reality of the site); and creating opportunities for shifts of consciousness and awareness (drawing attention to things that already exist, but that we forget to pay attention to). Headlong has performed nationally and internationally.
