The Eros Project is a multi-modal dance triptych that triangulates desire, teases edges, and manipulates vantage points. What are the edges of ourselves and the edges of our desire? How is desire an othering of the self? The Eros Project blends readings on the eros and the erotic, the curation of desire through colonialism, and somatic investigations into longing and loving. The Eros Project is an embodied collection of choreographic scores, fragments, musings, portraits, and conversations.
By creating fragmented narrative and choreographic vignette studies of The Lover, The Beloved, and The Third (the vantage point between) as three separate characters in the mind - The Eros Project proposes intimate tracings, psychological fragments, and poetic reframes about ways of loving the self and losing the self. The Eros Project is an exploration of the effusive, evasive, and ephemeral ways of knowing the self.
Nora Alami is a Moroccan-American dance artist currently based on the unceded lands of the Lenape-Hoking and Canarsie people, known as Brooklyn. Her choreography has been presented at the Center for Performance Research, New York Live Arts, International Center of Photography, pOnderosa, Colorado College, and Movement Research at Judson Church. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, River to River Festival, and toured internationally at the 2018 Focus on Mediterranean Choreography platform in Castiglioncello and Spoleto, Italy.
She has been awarded the Alliance for Artist Communities’ Diversity + Leadership Fellowship, New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks Choreographic Residency, and Miguel Gutierrez’s Landing 2.0. Nora is a 2021 JACK Resident Artist, a 2021 BRIClab: Performing Arts Resident Artist, and a recipient of the 2021 Rest and Restore Residency at The Petronio Center. She is thrilled to be developing The Eros Project as the 2022 Resident Artist at Triskelion Arts.
