Choreographer Katherine Stark presents a work-in-progress showing of The One, The Other One, & The Many by her company The Naked Stark on June 3 at 6pm at Mascher Space Cooperative. Pay what you can! Suggested donation $10. We caught up with Katharine Stark for a couple questions about the new dance.
FringeArts: This is an “in-progress” showing. What are you most interested in discovering?
Katharine Stark: I’m at a pure research stage in my movement investigation; I’m staying away from developing a narrative or making any large structural choices. I’m sharing explorations in leading and following, using cinematic devices to create narratives/characters, and ways to create cinematic effects in movement. I’m curious to learn how the audience sees the material. Are the devices and effects we’re exploring readable?
FringeArts: Can you give us a couple hints about the “cinematographic” approach to choreography?
Katharine Stark: One of the effects we have been exploring in rehearsal is shifting back and forth between two locations/times/scenes etc. We created two duets to establish the two scenes; I broke them into three chunks and cut back and forth between the chunks through having the dancers pop in and out of the floor and in and out of a wall. The intent is a clear division between scenes and for the audience to be able to follow each scene even though they are broken up. We’ll see!
Thanks Katharine, looking forward to it!
