Solos for Other People explores how information is transmitted between a choreographer and ten dancers, and how that evolves into a performance that encompasses and implicates the audience, just by being there. The space, a basketball gymnasium, is redolent of performance, activity and familiarity. However, things may not be quite as they seem.
Solos for Other People is about how we move in the world as agents and observers, continually making decisions and assessing our options: finding our way.
“The performance is about me/not about me, will show you/will not show you my choreographic signature, is me/is not me performing. Solos for Other People explores choreography and how it functions in this world of shifting contexts, authenticity and expertise.” Shelley Lasica
