Choreographer, artist and educator Ilya Vidrin and the New Museum’s Division of Training and Public Engagement current the world premiere of Extra or Much less, a meditative efficiency investigating social duty and communal care. Performances will happen on September 9 at 7pm, and September 10 at 4pm and 7pm, on the New Museum in NYC, and can function the end result of the 2022 New Museum Artist Residency “Ilya Vidrin: Every part You Do Issues, No Matter What You Do.”
Extra or Much less is a proper inquiry on partnering. Shifting fluidly from dyads to solo to group work, the performers examine relationships as they intentionally encounter each other, the ground, mild and sound within the Museum’s white field theater. Drawing on questions of obligation, company and consent, the performers negotiate gestural loops and layers to light up an emergent logic of care. The principle content material of the night consists of Vidrin’s “partnering research” – loopable relational workout routines that constrain motion to ask generative relational consciousness. Vidrin can be joined in efficiency with collaborators Eric Seligman (trumpet, vocals, electronics), Mel Hsu (cello, vocals, electronics), and motion artists Jessi Stegall, Cameron Surh, Valeria Solomonoff and Niki Farahani.
The partnering research search to hassle the concept that companions can keep their interplay merely by executing the proper strikes on the proper time, the place high quality of motion and purpose for motion stay unspecified. The kinesthetic constraints of every examine make it troublesome for companions to fail to take care of the related options of high quality or just not care about how the motion itself was executed – transferring past merely executing the proper motion on the proper time. The research render salient each second of inattention or insensitivity, offering a compelling framework by which to discover embodied care. For care to be exercised in its fullest sense on this work, every associate wants to grasp the potential for threat and willingly belief in understanding of that threat.
