I Think Not
Dance Double bill
Anushiye Yarnell & Riika Theresa Innanen
Choreography: Deborah Hay
What if there is a correspondence between the dancer’s aesthetics and her/his survival?
There is no time to hatch an invincible plan.
Ready! Fire! Aim!
In 2011 Anushiye Yarnell and Riika participated in Solo Performance Commissioning Project a residency where a group of artists commission the same solo choreography from the influential choreographer Deborah Hay.
Deborah Hay choreographs using a set of aesthetic criteria which exists below the surface of our perceptions, using a holistic approach to the human being and the artist. Anushiye Yarnell is a performer whose works reveal an alternate territory for the audience and performer to co-inhabit. Her works have drawn on personal experience, past and future mythologies, notions of paradise and civilization, dreams and cultural diversity. Riikka Theresa Innanen is a Finnish artist working internationally as choreographer, dancer, video and visual artist, curator and teacher.
