As Holy Sites Go
A choreography by Deborah Hay
with Jeanine Durning, Juliette Mapp and Ros Warby
»As Holy Sites Go« is a trio choreographed and directed by Deborah Hay and performed by dancers/choreographers Jeanine Durning, Juliette Mapp, and Ros Warby. The material is reconstructed from Hay’s solo dance »No Time To Fly«, which the 3 dancers have already adapted and performed as a solo work. The performances consist of the trio, »As Holy Sites Go«, and a single adaptation of »No Time To Fly«, performed by a different dancer each evening.
› The dancers’ choice to perform much of the choreographic material that determines »As Holy Sites Go«, and »No Time To Fly«, requires catastrophic acts of perception. ‘Catastrophe’ in this sense refers to the magnitude of former behavior that the dancers need to dis-attach from in order to perform my choreographic directions. It represents a loss of tremendous proportion.‹ (Deborah Hay)
The Deborah Hay Dance Companys mission is to foster a discerning appreciation for the human body within the cultural construct of contemporary society, through dance as experienced by audience, student, and/or performer. Central to this mission is the role of humor in recognizing the wildly cogent dancer we are capable of exercising into action.
