Bodies launch into orbit, vibrating in a lustful and hypnotic ritual, Dog Rising mirrors the life cycle, the dynamic flow of matter.
From primitive impulses to gestures that are at times sexual, at times mechanical, Clara Furey’s new creation comes together like a polyphony of pulsating bodies, in turns dissonant and in unison. The choreographer pursues an exploration of physical phenomena: the way sound vibrations penetrate the bones, the way our skeletons absorb shocks, listening closely to the presence of the body as it fully manifests itself.
On stage, the trio erects an architecture of pleasure and is inhabited and nourished by empathy and acute attention to the energy of the body and to others. Through their tireless movement work, tensions are released in the endless repetition of cyclical gestures. Dog Rising invites us to embark on an extreme journey, a mesmerising, haunting, and penetrating spiral.
Dog Rising performer and artist Brian Mendez will also be running a Vogue Class at DanceXchange find out more about it here.
