TWO. The works begins and ends with two choreographers unrelated to each other. Thomas Hauert (CH/BE) and Bebe Miller (US). In this project, we have selected two working strategies each from two choreographers that together bring us into a direct encounter with the dancing mind and the thinking body. Both Thomas Hauert and Bebe Miller are currently choreographing improvisation for performance and are engaging directly with the nature of human consciousness. When we watch them and their dance, we are watching them at work. We are the witness to the concentration and forms of attention that they bring to the moment and to how they work with their habits, tendencies, impulses and memories in action.
