Throwaway Line

Throwaway Line is a tragic-romantic-thrill-comedy dance solo composed for a deadbeat actress. The story develops as an open diary. Fragmented narratives from the actress’s past reveal both her lust and her disgust. The dancing female body is a provocation, and escapes categorization. Throwaway Line manifests as a stream of consciousness, a play-through of events which take place post-show, post-performance –always in the aftermath of “giving her all” to her beloved audience. Her movements are a dialogue with her fragmented past, and she stages them publicly. She draws on the emotions and makes physical the desires of various personas and social relations from these memories.
