SERAFINE1369 presents a new performance with an original score exploring ideas of choreographic decay, fragmentation, cyclicality and fleeting catharsis.

"This is a work made in winter for the spring, listening in the darkness to the subterranean murmurs of things about to emerge that can't yet be seen or touched. They say that it's always darkest before the dawn.

The starting point (if there can be such a thing as a beginning) is a line from a poem I wrote at the invitation of another artist, the contemporary dance practice of making versions of 'Le Sacre du Printempts' or 'The Rite of Spring' and a work I made in 2019 just before the pandemic. Each of these speak to the reckonings and returns that cycles can bring.

A fragment of the poem loops through all three tracks that make up The Ways, The Fortune, The Fall. Each track is eleven minutes and eleven seconds in duration. The cycle will run three times."

SERAFINE1369
is an independent artist, dancer and body-focused researcher working with dancing as a philosophical undertaking, a political project with ethical psycho-spiritual ramifications for being-in-the-world; dancing as intimate technology. Their work is choreographic and uses (de)composition as a state of cycling and crumbling towards the stark expressive utterances of the minutiae of sensing. Their methodology is intuitive and many-headed, considering the interrelatedness of myriad systems.
