"Hymn" by Anneke Hansen Dance
Anneke Hansen Dance
"Hymn" is an evening-length dance choreographed by Anneke Hansen. Devised as a solo, it will be performed by two women and five men. "Hymn" examines devotional acts of physical labor, the unifying commonality of the human form, how the ideas of dissolution and continuance converse, and the ways in which committed effort can amount to the raising of praise. “Womanly” movement vocabulary is transposed to “manly” canvases, and constant abstract action is juxtaposed by more mercurial and poetic dancing. "Hymn" is an exploration of female strength and power, and of masculine sensitivity and sensuousness.
